Critical Questions

October 6, 2019 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Losing My Religion

Scripture: Galatians 3:1–14

Once you have joined God’s family through faith alone in Jesus alone, how do you live appropriately as a member of his family? 

2 Options:

  • Paul: Having begun by faith and the Spirit, keep living by faith and the Spirit (1-3)
  • “Circumcision Party:” Live as God’s people always have, through obedience to the Law

Paul’s Arguments

  • You received the Holy Spirit by faith, not works of the law (2, 14)
  • Abraham lived by faith, so those who live by faith are Abraham’s true heirs (7-9)
  • Anyone who lives by the Law is obligated to keep ALL of it - and none of us can (10-14)

Take Home Ideas:

  • God is not finished with us once we join his family (3.3)
  • If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit (5.25)
