What is the message and meaning of Galatians 4

  1. Hi All:

    I used this scripture in a reply the other day, would anyone like to comment on it, what does it mean in your opinion?

    For it is written: “Be glad, you barren woman who does not give birth; break into joyful shouting, you woman who does not have birth pains; for the children of the desolate woman are more numerous than those of her who has the husband.â€￾+ 28 Now you, brothers, are children of the promise the same as Isaac was.+ 29 But just as then the one born through natural descent* began persecuting the one born through spirit,+ so also now.+ 30 Nevertheless, what does the scripture say? “Drive out the servant girl and her son, for the son of the servant girl will by no means be an heir with the son of the free woman.â€￾+ 31 So, brothers, we are children, not of a servant girl, but of the free woman. Galatians 4 NWT

    the servant girl represented those that had to serve Jehovah under the laws of old.. and the free women is those having Christian salvation . but may be someone else can elaborate.
