As a Child of God, You Now Have the Holy Spirit Inside Your Heart

Happy Monday Saints. Galatians 4:6 “BECAUSE YOU ARE HIS SONS, GOD SENT THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS, THE SPIRIT WHO CALLS OUT, ‘ABBA FATHER.'” As we saw last week, if you believe in JESUS, you are a child of God. And as a child of God, you now have the Holy Spirit […]

Jesus Gave the Right to Become God’s Children to Everyone Who Believes In Him

Happy Friday Saints. Galatians 4:4-5 “BUT WHEN THE SET TIME HAD FULLY COME, GOD SENT HIS SON, BORN OF A WOMAN, BORN UNDER THE LAW, TO REDEEM THOSE UNDER THE LAW, THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE ADOPTION TO SONSHIP.” In God’s infinite wisdom, Jesus came at the perfect time. And in accordance with the promise He […]

Jesus Redeemed Us From the Curse of the Law

Happy Thursday Saints. Galatians 3:13 “CHRIST REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW BY BECOMING A CURSE FOR US, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, ‘CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO IS HUNG ON A POLE.'” The Judaisers tried to use the law to prove that they were blessed. But the Apostle Paul used the same law against […]

We are Sons of Father Abraham, so Let’s Just Praise the Lord!

Happy Tuesday Saints. Galatians 3:6-9 “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS. UNDERSTAND THEN, THAT THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH ARE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM. SCRIPTURE FORESAW THAT GOD WOULD JUSTIFY THE GENTILES BY FAITH, AND ANNOUNCED THE GOSPEL IN ADVANCE TO ABRAHAM: ‘ALL NATIONS WOULD BE BLESSED THROUGH YOU.’ SO THOSE WHO […]

Jesus Took the Punishment for our Sins and Died for You and Me

Happy Friday Saints. Galatians 2:21 “I DO NOT SET ASIDE THE GRACE OF GOD, FOR IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COULD BE GAINED THROUGH THE LAW, CHRIST DIED FOR NOTHING.” The law cannot give anyone life. It can only condemn those who break it. And we have ALL broken God’s laws, so without Jesus, we are doomed. Righteousness […]

You are Justified and Made Righteous by Faith in Christ Jesus

Happy Wednesday Saints. Yesterday, we looked at Galatians 2:16, which says, “A PERSON IS NOT JUSTIFIED BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, BUT BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST.” What does it mean to be “JUSTIFIED”? Justification is when a sinner is graciously declared righteous by God when they place their faith in Jesus Christ. To […]

No One is Justified By the Law, but By Faith in Jesus Christ

Happy Tuesday Saints. Galatians 2:15-16 “WE WHO ARE JEWS BY BIRTH AND NOT SINFUL GENTILES, KNOW THAT A PERSON IS NOT JUSTIFIED BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, BUT BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. SO WE, TOO, HAVE PUT OUR FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS, THAT WE MAY BE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH IN CHRIST AND NOT […]

We are Saved by Grace through Faith alone, and Salvation is a GIFT from God

Happy Monday Saints. Galatians 2:4-5 “SOME FALSE BELIEVERS HAD INFILTRATED OUR RANKS TO SPY ON THE FREEDOM WE HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS AND TO MAKE US SLAVES. WE DID NOT GIVE INTO THEM SO THAT THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL MIGHT BE PRESERVED FOR YOU.” The Apostle Paul stood up for THE TRUTH OF THE […]

You have the Privilege of Sharing God’s Love with Others

Happy Friday Saints. The Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians 1:22-24, “I WAS PERSONALLY UNKNOWN TO THE CHURCHES OF JUDEA THAT ARE IN CHRIST. THEY ONLY HEARD THE REPORT: ‘THE MAN WHO FORMERLY PERSECUTED US IS NOW PREACHING THE FAITH HE ONCE TRIED TO DESTROY.’ AND THEY PRAISED GOD BECAUSE OF ME.” The Christian churches in […]

God’s Grace, Love and Favour Aren’t Based on our Performance – they are FREE for All Who Believe

Happy Tuesday Saints. Galatians 1:6-7 “I AM ASTONISHED THAT YOU ARE SO QUICKLY DESERTING THE ONE WHO CALLED YOU TO LIVE IN THE GRACE OF CHRIST AND ARE TURNING TO A DIFFERENT GOSPEL, WHICH IS REALLY NO GOSPEL AT ALL. EVIDENTLY, SOME PEOPLE ARE THROWING YOU INTO CONFUSION AND ARE TRYING TO PERVERT THE GOSPEL […]
