Galatians, Chapter Three, Lesson Two

HOLY BY FAITH           Page 5

V.14 ** Why did this have to happen, why would Christ do it?

"...in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles..."

The same righteousness, and thus salvation by faith that was reckoned to Abraham could now be offered to the nations of the world, because Jesus Christ became the curse in our place!
That is incredible!

** Just to make sure that we don't miss it, what vehicle does God use to bring this blessing?

"...that in Christ Jesus..." It is only through faith in Jesus Christ that someone can become blessed like Abraham. (cf. John 14:6)

** Now that this blessing of Abraham has come to the Gentiles, what can we receive?

"..the promise of the Spirit.." Remember from last week that God provides us with His Spirit (V.5) and Jesus promised His disciples that He would send the Spirit in Acts 1:4-5.

** What are some of the benefits of having received the Spirit of Jesus Christ?

1) Ephesians 1:3 - We are blessed "with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ".

2) Ephesians 1:13 - We are sealed in Him and Ephesians 4:30 - (for the day of redemption)

3) John 16:7-8 - He convicts us of our sin.

4) John 14:16-17 - He helps us in our frailty.

5) Romans 8:26 - He helps us communicate our hearts to God in prayer.

** Now, does all of that come through the works of the Law?

No! It comes to us "...through faith."

EXTRICATE

** How did God justify the Gentiles?

"...by faith..."
