Gospel for Life: A Study in Galatians

God’s law vs. God’s promise?

Galatians 3:15-25

God’s law confines all to receive the promise of life by faith in Christ

 

Review of 3:1-14

  • Evidence that conversion comes by faith not law.
  • Proof that being counted right with God has always been by faith.
  • Why no one can be counted right with God by works.

 

1.) The priority and permanence of the promise, 3:15-18

2.) The purpose of the law is to expose sin, 3:19-20

3.) God’s law is not against His promises but no law could give life, 3:21

4.) The law confines all to receive the promise of life by faith in Christ, 3:22-23

5.) The law disciplines so we may be counted righteous by faith in Christ, 3:24-25
