GALATIANS 3:21-22

21 Is there a conflict, then, between God’s law and God’s promises?[a] Absolutely not! If the law could give us new life, we could be made right with God by obeying it. 22 But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.

MADE RIGHT

The whole momentum of the Bible is in the direction of the saving work of Jesus Christ. The law was never given as an antidote to sin, only as a diagnosis. Let’s explore the solution to the problem of sin.

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: How does this passage say we are made right with God?

Q: Have you been made right with God?

Q: Is there someone in your life that God is calling you to share this good news with?
