“Imprisoned by the Law; Freed by the Gospel” (Galatians 3:15-22)

Pastor Dale Jaech, August 26, 2018
Part of the 2018 Pentecost/Trinity series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge our inability to live in the image of Your righteousness and holiness. Lead us to be grateful for Your Law which reveals our lost condition and grant us grace through Your Holy Spirit to find our eternal freedom in the sacrifice of Your Dear Son, our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Galatians 3:15-22

15Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. 16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. 21Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. (KJV)
