The Galatians Study, started on April 21, 2013, is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division taught by Wayne Stewart and takes a verse by verse look at the book of Galatians. Using the foundations taught from his previous study, Wayne looks at teaching Galatians rightly divided. This book was written by the Apostle Paul in his first ministry and is defending his Apostleship and the message of salvation by grace during the book of Acts with the churches in Galatia. This study will teach us Galatians from the context of Paul's teaching through the book of Acts.
The lesson on September 8, 2013 was part 21 of the "Galatians" study. The lesson continued in chapter 5 looking at verses 10 through 26. This covered the "Troubler" and the "Restorer". We all should do our part in the role as a restorer. The law of love "fulfilled" which looked at 17 works of the flesh listed along with the 9 works of the Spirit. We learn why Paul was showing confidence in the law because he made it clear it had nothing to do with justification. This did not mean that the law was bad. Paul says in Romans 7:12 that the law was holy, just and good but not for justification. He was appealing to the law for the fulfillment of love. The law had some good applications that continued over the Acts 28 boundary and showed up in Paul's prison epistles. The ten commandments (but not the added law) are reflected in Ephesians 6. Paul leaves out the part of the law that does not apply to this age and keeps in the part of the law that is consistent with love. The scripture reading was from Ephesians 6:1-4 KJV
