Galatians Theme: ‘Grace through Faith in Christ Frees Christians from the Bondage of Law’
‘…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…. 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.  I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.… Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage’ (Gal. 2:16, 20-21; 5:1, NKJV).
