A "Double Sending Forth" (Gal. 4:4, 6)

What a great time in God's word this morning! I was in Galatians chapter 4. See the words I circled below? 

They form an intentional repetition on the part of Paul that I had never seen before. It's what I'm calling a "double sending forth."

First, God sent his Son into the world. Second, God sent his Spirit into our hearts. That is fantastic! God not only secures our sonship by his Son, but he assures our sonship by his Spirit. If this doesn't light your fire, your wood is all wet!
