M2013 s45 living by faith gal 2 7 28-13 sermon

  1. 1. Maud church of Christ Galatians 2:16-21 by Jim Bradshaw Sunday Morning, July 28, 2013
  2. 2. Made Righteous by Faith Gal 2:16 NKJV knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. Gal 2:21 NKJV I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." If we could be made righteous by following a list of Do’s and Don’ts then Christ would have died on the Cross for no purpose Eph 2:8 NKJV For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
  3. 3. Made Righteous by Faith Rom 5:6-11 NKJV For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (7) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. (8) But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (9) Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. (10) For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (11) And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
  4. 4. Made Righteous by Faith Gal 3:23-25 KJV But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. (24) Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. (25) But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. Justified Basically it means: Just-if-I’d-never sinned. Dikaloō – literally means to be righteous; ME rightwise – i.e. right before God.
  5. 5. Made Righteous by Faith Is it faith “in” or faith “of” Jesus Christ (It makes a difference, James 2:19) Gal 2:16 KJV Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Rom 3:21-26 KJV But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; (22) Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (23) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (24) Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (25) Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (26) To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
  6. 6. Made Righteous by Faith Is it faith “in” or faith “of” Jesus Christ (It makes a difference) Gal 2:16 KJV Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Pisteōs Iēsou Christou – is “faith of Jesus Christ.” Jud 1:3 KJV Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
  7. 7. Gal 2:17-18 NKJV "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! (18) For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. We cannot be Righteous and keep on Sinning Read 1 John 1:7-9 1Jn 5:18 ESV We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning (PAI), but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.
  8. 8. Gal 2:17-18 NKJV "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! (18) For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. We cannot regain what we destroy If we live in sin we tear down our house with God, a house that cannot be built back by ourselves; Rom. 3:10 Act 8:21-22 NKJV You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. (22) Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.
  9. 9. We must all repent!!!, Luke 13:3, 5
  10. 10. We Must live to God Gal 2:19-21 NKJV For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. (20) I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (21) I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." Php 1:21 NKJV For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
  11. 11. We Must live to God Gal 2:19-21 NKJV For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. (20) I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (21) I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." Rom 6:7-8 NKJV For he who has died has been freed from sin. (8) Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
  12. 12. We Must Crucify the flesh Gal 2:19-21 NKJV For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. (20) I have been crucified (RPI) with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (21) I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." Gal 5:24 NKJV And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
  13. 13. For Christ to LIVE in US, WE Must live by the FAITH of the Son of God Gal 2:20-21 KJV I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (21) I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
  14. 14. For Christ to LIVE in US, WE Must live by the FAITH of the Son of God Rom 6:3-6 NKJV Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? (4) Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (5) For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, (6) knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
