The Law Can’t Save You So Why Try? Galatians 2:18

‘For if I rebuild what I have once destroyed, I prove myself to be a transgressor. ‘

Galatians 2:18

In other words, Paul is saying he couldn’t go back and undo all the horrible things he did to the believing Jews before his Damascus road experience because if he did, that would elevate his works (legalism) above God’s grace. And that can never happen. Why? Read on.

Galatians 2:21

I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.’

Plain enough? The moment we try to do something, anything to gain favor with God we take Christ off the cross. And we are cursed (anathema) Galatians 1:8,9.

 

Remember the letter to the Galatian church was written in response to Judiazers (Acts 15:1,5) that were coming in behind Paul trying to convince Paul’s Gentile converts that they were not saved by faith alone in the finished work of the cross alone but that they needed to be circumcised and keep the law. Sadly, it’s no different today!!! It may not be circumcision but man has added much to Paul’s gospel which then makes it no gospel at all.

The Good News

salvation

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '

Romans 10:9

The Best is Yet to Come for the Body of Christ “Blessed Hope”

God's word is full of Bible verses telling us about the “hope” (ἐλπίς/G1680/elpis) we have. This hope isn’t maybe, it’s a guaranteed hope. The hope we have as believers isn't something good may happen if everything lines up correctly. Or if I do just enough things...
