Midweek Blues:" PPATW LOGO"
GALATIANS 1- 3
Peter admonished the Galatians to be careful and not to listen to anyone who is not preaching the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ. He made it clear that it is by faith in Christ that they are justified and not by their works of the law (God's commandments). Paul also shares in Galatians 2:20 that we are to surrender to Christ and to live by faith, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I love in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Finally Paul states that they are to live by faith, not by the law for Christ fulfilled the law, "So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law" Galatians 3:24-25.
WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO US?
We too need to read the Word to know the true gospel of Christ so that we will know who is preaching and or teaching the truth according to God's word. We must also not fall into the trap of trying to please God solely by our works. We must crucify the self and allow Christ to live in us to teach us how to live by faith.
