Galatians 3:1-9 (Galatians 3:1-9)Tim Douglass, October 7, 2018
Part of the Galatians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Who has not done something foolish in their life? We all make mistakes and fall prey to wrong ideas or false teachings. Paul calls the Galatians churches sharply to account over their mistake, but he also goes into great detail to make sure that they fully understand what that mistake is. The central question for the Galatians churches is the source of their salvation – faith in Christ of the works of the law. They have to understand the answer to that in order to be able to deal with the false teaching they are confronted with.

1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. 5He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 6Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. (KJV)
