Trustworthy Heirs – Galatians 4 – Draw Bible Stories Project

Trustworthy Heirs Story (Galatians 4:1-7)

Slave’s Rights – slave, chain, girl – Paul explains the difference between a slave and an adult heir. Before Christ, we were like slaves and little kids with no rights.

Unseen Dominion – serpent, sword, cloud – Apart from God, we are spiritual captives to evil forces in unseen realms. These dark powers made us blind to the Truth.

Freedom Miracle – mother, baby, flame, cross – Yahweh always planned to liberate us from Satan. Jesus came to our rescue. He became human to redeem our lives.

Kingdom Royalty – man, woman, cloud, crown – God adopted us out of slavery and anointed us as coheirs with Jesus. We are God’s sons and daughters, sharing in Christ’s authority. We walk with God as companions.
