Read Galatians 1-3
The gospel to the Gentiles dismantles the law as the means to salvation. It is by Christ alone I have the power to stand before God justified. Both is true, the law is not the way to obtain salvation, and Christ never promotes sin. Confession and repentance are open to all.
“When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.””
Acts 11:18 NIV
““But if, in seeking to be justified in Christ, we Jews find ourselves also among the sinners, doesn’t that mean that Christ promotes sin? Absolutely not! If I rebuild what I destroyed, then I really would be a lawbreaker. “For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!””
Galatians 2:17-21 NIV
My friend Dana sent this on our small group text and it seems fitting: Reading Galatians today and in my Bible I had written: Grace is God’s power in action to help us live out the Christian life. 🏻
