Galatians 3:19-29 (Galatians 3:19-29)Tim Douglass, November 11, 2018
Part of the Galatians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
If the law is our tutor and under the law we are shown our need for a savior, it is also true that it is faith that makes the law effective as that tutor. As we are in God through faith in Christ so the law demands faith. It is easy to read the law as a series of instructions that we can follow to get to righteousness, but in reality the way the law works is as an exposition of how faith looks in the real world.

19Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. 21Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
