The Law and the Promise

June 17, 2018 Preacher: Chris Ritter Series: No Other Gospel

Topic: Salvation Scripture: Galatians 3:15–3:24

The Law and the Promise
Galatians 3:15-24

Big Idea:  Understanding the Law requires that you believe 4 crucial truths


Truth #1:  The Law never changed how someone is justified before God

Matthew 1:1 “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham” 
John 8:39, 40, 44a 


Truth #2:  The Law exposes, increases and explains sin

the Law is not a ladder for you to climb up to God but a mirror for you to see your sin as ugly as it is 
The Law exposes sin but did not create it 
the Law increases sin but does not cause it 
the Law explains sin but cannot cover it 

Truth #3:  The Law imprisons sinners in sin


Truth #4: The Law magnifies the beauty of justification by faith
