How did Paul prove that Christians are children of God?

Paul proved that Christians are children of God as he taught
that with the advent of faith, Christians are no longer under any dispensation
of law. We are sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Our baptism means
putting on Christ. In Christ Jesus, there is no discrimination, no Jew nor
Greek. If we are Christ’s, then we are Abraham’s offspring and heirs according
to promise. The heir can be compared to a slave because though he owns the
estate, he could not exercise control being under a guardian. So when we were
children, we were slaves to the spiritual elements, but at the appointed time, God
sent His son who was born of a woman and even under the law to redeem those who
were under the law, thus enabling them to receive adoption as sons leading to
freedom through Christ.

When we become sons of God, we receive the spirit of His son in
our hearts and by so doing we are no longer slaves but sons of God and,
therefore, heirs.
