Galatians 4:1-31

We are heirs of Christ through faith in Him, not by our own merits.

1.  God Turns Spiritual Slaves into Children of God and
     Heirs of Christ

     (Galatians 4:1-7)

     God adopts us into His family through the sacrifice
     of His only Son.
2.  Guard Against Returning to Slavery in Sin and Works-Based

     (Galatians 4:8-20)

     Paul loved the Galatians enough to warn them against
     their tendency to return to the old covenant.
3.  Our Inheritance is Based on Faith in God's Promise and
     Nothing Else

     (Galatians 4:21-31)

     Paul explained that believers are given an inheritance
     as God's children.

Galatians 3:1-29

Paul explained that justification has always been through faith,
even in the Old Testament.

1.  The Galatians' Own Experience Demonstrated That
     Salvation is by Faith in Christ, Not by Works

     (Galatians 3:1-5)

     We continue to trust Christ rather than works for right
     standing with God.
2.  Justification Has Always Been Through Faith

     (Galatians 3:6-20)

     Even as far back as Abraham, justification came by
     way of faith.
3.  God's Laws and Commands Show Us That We Fall
     Short of His Standard

     (Galatians 3:21-28)

     Paul explained that the Law was a tutor or
     schoolmaster to lead us to Christ.

Galatians 1:1-12 ; 2:15-21

The apostle Paul warned the Galatian believers against
accepting any gospel other than salvation by grace
through faith.

1.  Salvation by Grace Through Faith in Christ is the One
     True Gospel

     (Galatians 1:1-10)

     We cling to the true gospel of salvation by grace
     through faith in Christ and reject any distortion
     of the truth.
2.  The True Gospel Came Via Direct Revelation from Jesus

     (Galatians 1:11-12)

     We can have confidence that the gospel is true
     because its source is Christ.
3.  Salvation is by Grace Through Faith in Jesus, Not by Works

     (Galatians 2:15-21)

     The gospel is based on what Christ did, not on anything
     we can do.

     we disciple others.

     Discipling in an Adoptive Relationship

     discipling their children.
2.  Discipleship Can Take Place Through the Related Family Model

     (Mordecai and Esther - Esther 2:5-7)

     God can work through relatives to care for and disciple
     extended family.

     spouse disciple their children.

4.  Discipleship Can Take Place Through the Adopted Family Model

2.  Sin Marred Our Oneness with God, and with Each Other

     (Genesis 3:1-18 ; Jeremiah 17:9 ; Philippians 2:3-4)

     The effects of sin can make good, healthy relationships

     His Church
