Who Has Bewitched You? – Part 1
Gal 3:1 – O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? NKJV
We are going to look at grace! I have a strong sense that the main purpose of this series will be to remind us how we first were saved and to realize that this is how the continued work of grace is to remain effective in our lives. Paul by the Holy Spirit said it this way, Gal 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.” NKJV. We must stand against the bewitching spirit of religion in our lives. As Bob Yandian puts it, “The grace of God poured out at Calvary, freed us from all self-striving so we may live truly Spirit-filled, fruitful lives of freedom and joy.” Christ has provided all we need to enter God’s family and has provided all we need to live as God’s children. By grace through faith!
Part 1 – We begin by looking into Ephesians 2:1 where we see that grace through Christ provided the payment for the sins that we did not know we were in and the ones we were intentionally committing. For grace to operate as intended at a strong level of faith, believers must remain focused on Christ and Him crucified.
God’s grace was lovingly supplied for my initiation into His kingdom, in addition, I discover that His grace was lovingly supplied for my continuation in His kingdom as well. Tony Cooke – Grace: The DNA Of God.
