Galatians 2:17-21

17 But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not! 18 Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down. 19 For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. 20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.


Q:The people in the Old Testament tried to earn righteousness, but they were unable to do this on their own, they needed and hoped for a Savior. Now that we have Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, how are we to live?

Q:Do you fully live by faith through the power given to us by the Holy Spirit or do you depend more on self-effort?

Q:If you were to meet someone who believed the only way to be a Christian was to follow the Old Testament laws, how would you explain the principles of grace, faith, and salvation to them and how could this give them hope?
