Galatians – Galatians 2
 
Three Clarifications of Justification:
  • All religions seek justification in one of two ways - by the work and effort of man - by the work and effort of God
  • Justification is a work of God - it is the opposite of condemnation - it is being pardoned for all sin and guilt - it is being declared legally righteous and accepted
  • Faith is the only instrument for justification - faith in Jesus Christ - it is Christ who saves us – faith places us in Him

    • Whoever is not from God does not listen to the apostles (scriptures)

    Irreversible Truths of the Law of Sowing and Reaping
    1. Whatever a man sows, he will reap
    2. The kind that we sow is the kind that we will reap
    3. The law of S&R is both negative and positive
    4. We reap MORE than we sow
    5. Sowing is reactive – it is responding to a desire
    6. When we sow to the flesh, we are deceived
    7. We reap in proportion to how much we sow
    8. Sowing and Reaping are in different seasons - reaping comes in God’s appointed season
    9. The cross is proof that the law of S&R is fixed
    10. The Gospel does not remove the law of S&R - it switches the roles of the sower and reaper - we reap what Christ has sown - He reaped what we have sown
    11. God uses the law of S&R to discipline His children
    12. We reap a harvest of “fruit” - fruit has seed which will start S&R over again
