Substitution – for the sins of the world 2. Identification – unto the sin nature 3:2 Paul’s Questions - To cause them to apply their minds (vs. being foolish continuously) - How did you receive the Holy Spirit – the one indwelling you ? 1. By the works of a law system ? 2. By the hearing of faith (faith hearing) ? Reason for the questions - Their Christian life was characterized by living according to a law system - But that is not the way they started the Christian life - They started the Christian life – by hearing of faith - They heard of God’s grace - They responded by faith There is no other way that man can please God or come to God – Heb. 11:6 The moment they responded by faith they received the Spirit – not by Law * Hal Molloy
