By faith or law

BY FAITH OR LAW?

Gal. 3:1-14


Mixed feelings

Mixed Feelings

  • Could we ever be “good enough”? We must work harder!

  • Jesus was “openly set forth”. Posted as a public announcement.

  • Acts 13:23, 27.

  • Paul makes 4 arguments for faith as opposed to works of the law.


Argument 1 from experience

Argument 1 – From Experience

  • Holy Spirit and miracles – not from law.

  • Acts 2:38; 5:32

  • Miraculous powers to some: Acts 8:14; I Cor. 12:4-11

  • Having begun in the Spirit…?

  • They had suffered for their faith – Acts 13-14. (esp. 14:22


Argument 2 the case of abraham

Argument 2 – The Case of Abraham

  • He began before law or circumcision – Gen. 15:6.

  • V. 7. Sons of his faith, not of law.

  • V. 8. This includes the Gentiles, Gen. 12:3; 22:18.

  • Those of faith blessed w/Abraham.


Argument 3 the curse of law

Argument 3 – The Curse of Law

  • Law cannot justify – No Law can.

  • Brings under a curse – Deut. 27:26

  • Must “continue in all things”.

  • We don’t.

  • V. 11 – justification of by faith. Hab. 2:4.

  • Law and faith aren’t opposed to each other. But justification by both is impossible.


Argument 4 christ s redemption

Argument 4 – Christ’s Redemption

  • He became a curse for us – Deut 21:22-23

  • He assumed our sins, that’s the curse, not the tree.

  • Gentiles included, all sin – Rom. 3:9-10, 23

  • By faith.

  • Where is our faith? Sometimes too much in Christ. Sometimes too much in self.
