THE BLESSINGS OF THE GOSPEL
“You foolish Galatians! Why are you so foolish?!”
Are you out of your mind? What are you thinking? Use your noggin’! This makes no sense!
Who hypnotized you?!
The Blessing of the Spirit Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38)
The Blessing of the Spirit You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ, have clothed yourselves with Christ…. (Gal. 3:26-29)
The Blessing of the Spirit The Word (II Peter 1:20-21) My body (I Cor. 6:19-20) My lifestyle (Eph. 3:14-21) My destiny (Eph. 1:13-14) Would they trade all of that for obeying perfectly the Law of Moses?! Would they give up the Spirit for the Law?!
The Blessing of Justification “ You shouldn’t have.” “But I didn’t get you anything.” “Let me get that; you bought last time.” “You spent way too much on me.” --Mike Baker Freedom in Christ OUR HUMANNESS DOESN’T WANT TO TAKE ANYTHING FOR FREE!
The Demand of Trusting Law-keeping
The Demand of the Law
Humanness Likes to Earn It! “God does His part, and I do mine.”
You can’t buy or earn the Holy Spirit or Justification. They come by faith.
