The Book of Galatians Pt. 1
In his letter to the Galatians, the Apostle Paul explores the issue of righteousness and how a people not under the Law can experience personal holiness. Paul exhorts Believers to hold firmly to the principles by which salvation and holiness are found. He explains that the Mosaic Law has been replaced by a personal relationship with God, and that relationship provides freedom and true holiness.
In Part 1 of this two-part series, Dr. Price underlines the concept of justification by faith alone and living for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The word “justified” means to be declared righteous by God. No one can earn or merit this righteousness.
To return to the Law of Moses means setting aside the grace of God, the only hope mankind has of achieving righteousness.
The Law has always had a severely limited role in that it was temporary and powerless to make mankind alive or righteous (Galatians 3:19-22).
There is a new position for those who have faith in Christ Jesus–that is, sons and, therefore heirs!
