Children of the free woman (Gal. 4:31)

“Thus,

My brothers!

We are children,

Not of the slave woman

But of the free woman.”

διό, ἀδελφοί, οὐκ ἐσμὲν παιδίσκης τέκνα ἀλλὰ τῆς ἐλευθέρας.

Paul said, “Thus, my brothers (διό, ἀδελφοί)!  We are children, not of the slave (οὐκ ἐσμὲν παιδίσκης τέκνα) but of the free woman (ἀλλὰ τῆς ἐλευθέρας).”  Paul ended this section by saying that he and his believing Christian brothers in Galatia were children, not of the slave maiden, but of the free woman.  The Christians were the children of Sarah not Hagar.  Do you consider yourself the child of a free woman or a slave woman?
