Staying Free: A Letter to Recovering Pharisees (7)
Sermons on Paul's letter to the Galatians
Reading: Galatians 3:15-29
In these verses Paul is continuing his argument that no one can be justified by works of the law but only through faith in Christ. He introduces the illustration of a covenant made between two human parties, which no one could change once ratified. He then brings his readers back to the story of God’s promise to Abraham. Paul’s argument is that, what holds true in human terms is even more true when it is God who does the ratifying. He wants believers to understand they are no longer imprisoned under law; instead, through their faith in the Promised One, they are now children of the promise! To help us understand he explains the power of the promise, the purpose of the law & the priority of faith in Christ.
