14 Galatians 6: See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand! 12 Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised.

Freedom Through Justification (chapters 3-4) God has set us free from the penalty of sin: Justification. The purpose the Old Testament Law is to help us realize our need for the Savior, Jesus. Salvation is by grace through faith in the blood of Jesus. III. Freedom Through Sanctification (chapters 5-6) By faith the Spirit sets us free from the power of sin: Sanctification We are sanctified as we walk in the Spirit moment by moment.
