“Faith Without Works”
We continue our journey this week through the book of Galatians. The letter, we have discovered, is written by a ticked off Paul who is upset with how the leaders in the church are coming into Galatia and trying to get the people there to change their ways if they want to be considered as Christians. These leaders expect the Galatians to start following certain laws which they think are important in being followers of Jesus Christ. Paul disagrees.
Paul begins the third chapter with bringing the Galatians back to what started it all in the first place. Where did they get their faith? What brought the Holy Spirit in amongst them? Was it of their own actions? Was it there ability to follow rules? Or was it simply listening to what they heard?
