"Under guardians and stewards..."
Text: Galatians 4:2a
The apostle Paul had carefully articulated that all who are justified through faith in Christ might indeed be called sons of Abraham and heirs according to the promise. But how does this apply in real-life? He discusses this matter in the following text.
Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child,
does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,
but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.
Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage
under the elements of the world.
