Galatians 3:1 to 3Posted: Thu. Dec, 8 2022
You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
Be sure that you do not fall into the trap of thinking you can perfect yourself by your own efforts now that you are a Christian. You and I are no more able to perfect ourselves by our works than we were able to save ourselves by our works.
As you have received Christ, so walk in Him. The life we live now we live by faith- faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself up for us.
It is finished! Just as the blood of Christ is the perfect sacrifice for our sins, so also the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is the perfect provision for our sanctification.
He who began a good work in you will complete it to the day of Christ Jesus.
You can’t do this work. Simply believe that He will do it.
Don’t be anxious about your inability to fix yourself. Bring any worries or fears you may have about this to the Lord in prayer. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
