Who Has Bewitched You? – Part 2
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 2 – Ephesians 2:8 – For by the grace have you been saved in time past completely, through faith with the result that your salvation, persists through present time. Kenneth Wuest Translation. The grace of God was provided before we were ever born and will continue as long as we need it! If your present is secure, surely your future is also. As believers, we live by grace through faith.
