Galatians - Part 6

The lesson on May 26, 2013 continued the "Galatians" study with part 6 but first paid homage to those that died in the Moore, Oklahoma May 20, 2013 tornado.  It also was Memorial Day weekend so mention was given to honor those who have died for the United States of America. In chapter two, we learn by understanding why Paul is addressing Peter in regards to salvation by grace.  Paul is admonishing Peter that his walk be consitent with his witness to the Jew and not impose that on the Gentile. The Jews and Gentiles are saved by grace but the Jews were given the covenants and were asked to walk according to the law. The Gentile was now justified by grace, not the law. As a matter of fact, Paul is saying the Jew also, because works through the law won't get you saved.  The scripture reading was from Galatians 2:15-20 KJV "15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
