No longer a slave,
But a child.
If you are
Then you also are
ὥστε οὐκέτι εἶ δοῦλος ἀλλὰ υἱός· εἰ δὲ υἱός, καὶ κληρονόμος διὰ Θεοῦ.
Paul said, “You are no longer a slave (ὥστε οὐκέτι εἶ δοῦλος), but you are a child or a son (ἀλλὰ υἱός). If you are a child or son (εἰ δὲ υἱός), then also you are an heir (καὶ κληρονόμος) through God (διὰ Θεοῦ).” Paul explained that they were no longer like a slave, but rather they were like an immature son or a child. However, they then would become the heir to the kingdom of God because of God himself. God had changed them from slaves to heirs, the inheritors of the kingdom. They were the children of God, the inheritors of the kingdom. Are you aware of your inheritance?
