Witnessing Christ from the New Testament: Galatians - Truth in Love Ministry


Witnessing Christ from the New Testament: Galatians

Episode Summary

In this episode of Witnessing Christ from the New Testament, Mark and Molly discuss Galatians 1-6.

Paul’s letter to the Galatians is a passionate defense of the true gospel against early distortions. The Galatian churches, established by Paul, were influenced by certain Jewish Christians known as Judaizers. These false teachers claimed Gentiles needed to be circumcised and follow Mosaic Law to be true Christians.

As we study Galatians, we’ll examine Paul’s skillful arguments against the Judaizers and his emphatic defense of justification by faith.

Key Themes

  • Justification by faith vs. salvation by works
  • Freedom from the law’s demands
  • The contrast between law and grace, deeds and faith, the flesh and Spirit
  • Identity in Christ: adopted children and heirs
  • Unity of believers in Christ
  • The danger of distorting the true gospel

In Galatians 3:10, Paul writes, “For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.'”

This verse is a sobering reminder that we cannot be saved by our own works. The law is good, but it is also impossible to keep perfectly. We all fall short, and as a result, we are under the curse of the law.

The curse of the law is not a physical curse but a spiritual one. It is the separation from God that comes from our sin. We are cut off from his blessing and his favor.

But there is good news! Jesus came to break the curse of the law. He lived a perfect life and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. When we put our trust in Jesus, we are forgiven, and we are brought into a right relationship with God.

So, if you are feeling burdened by the law, or if you feel like you can never measure up, remember that Jesus has already done it for you. He has taken the curse upon himself so that you can be free.
