Next Week’s Message: Dying to Live Galatians 2:17-21


Paul has made the argument in his letter to the Galatians that a man is declared
righteous before God on the basis of faith alone. That raises an obvious problem: If
we are declared righteous on the basis of grace through faith, then why bother to
become a better person? What incentive do we have to live for God?

Some argue that the doctrine of justification promotes irresponsible living. If God gives
righteousness away for free, who will ever work for him again? Paul anticipated
that objection in the verses we want to look at next week. His argument is one we
all need to get a handle on. Let’s talk about it next Sunday.
