Why Do You Do What You Do?

Scripture References: Galatians 1:11-24

From Series: "Galatians"

The Book of Galatians, written by the apostle Paul, addresses the issue of legalism and the true nature of Christian faith. Paul emphasizes that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ alone, not through adherence to the Jewish law or any human effort. He fiercely defends the concept of justification by faith and argues against those who seek to impose circumcision and other Jewish customs on Gentile believers. Paul highlights the freedom found in Christ, urging believers to live by the Spirit rather than by the flesh, emphasizing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control as the fruits of a life lived in communion with God. He stresses the unity of believers in Christ, regardless of their backgrounds, and encourages them to walk in love and mutual support, avoiding divisions and strife.
