Galatians, Chapter Three, Lesson Four

HEIRS THROUGH FAITH            Page 6

EXTRICATE

** As you look back over our passage for today, how has it been a blessing to you? For which truths are you thankful?

1) I was not raised under the Law (V.23)
2) I was justified by faith in Christ (V.24)
3) I am taught by Christ, not the tutor (V.25)
4) I am a child of God (V.26)
5) I walk "clothed" in Christ (V.27)
6) I have union with all believers (V.28)
7) I am a joint heir with Jesus Christ (V.29)

DELINEATE

** What sequence of events does this passage show us, which takes the lost sinner to salvation?

1) The Law shows them they are sinners.
2) They are justified by grace through faith.
3) They are made into one body.
4) They inherit the kingdom with Jesus Christ.

EVALUATE

** Knowing that your ancestry goes back to "Abraham, the believer", what impact should that godly heritage have on your ability to live for Christ?

I have been forgiven so much and been given so much in Jesus Christ, that I must live up to the pattern of faithfulness which has been set down by all of those who have gone before me. Like my Father, Who is Holy, I too must be Holy! (cf. 2Corinthians 7:1)

ACTIVATE

** This entire third chapter of Paul's letter to the Galatians has focused on our salvation by grace through faith. That miraculous and free gift must not be tread under foot by our callous and sinful disregard for His Word. If we have learned that we came to salvation by "Hearing with Faith"; and that God alone made us "Holy by Faith"; and that we should live each day "Happy in Faith"; and finally be holy like our Father in heaven who made us "Heirs through Faith"; then truly we have been changed.

May you go from this study walking in devotion to Jesus Christ, and worshipping Him in spirit and truth!
