Justification and Living By Faith Explained

Sunday, September 1st 2019  |  Galatians 3:6-22

In chapter 3 Paul forms three interlocking arguments to prove to the Galatians that the Law is incapable of justifying a sinner before a righteous God. In vv1-5 he argues from their universal spiritual experience. In v6-9 he argues from Abraham’s justification by faith alone. In the remainder of the chapter he’s going to argue from the Law itself, that the Law was never intended and was incompetent to do what the Judaizers claimed… bring about or complete spiritual life… justification.
