Chapter Three, Lesson Two
HOLY BY FAITH Galatians 3:8-14 Print this Bible Study
** Last time, as we began chapter three of Paul's letter to the Galatians, we learned how important it is for a Christian to know and remember what he believes. Do you remember what happened when the Galatians became careless and lazy in their theology?
** To avoid the error of the Galatians, we asked the Lord to help us "gird our minds for action" and to stand "firm in our faith". Did anyone find it helpful to be preoccupied with this mental discipline during the challenges of this past week?
** Knowing that our future is secure in Christ, how are we to live each day? We have learned that salvation by works is a burden or curse that no one can bear, so how does our practical holiness manifest itself on a day in, day out basis? To learn the answer, please join me now in Galatians 3:8-14 as we learn from the apostle Paul what it means to be "Holy by Faith".
