Galatians 3:23-29 – June 19, 2022

Text: Galatians 3:23-29
One of the questions facing the early Christians, being Jewish and familiar with Jewish law and traditions, was “what does it mean that Jesus, who was reduced to nothing by being crucified on the cross, was raised from the dead?” The dead were considered unclean and cursed – and if God worked through one who is cursed, where is the curse? In Galatians, Paul argues that if the one who was made nothing is exalted by God to the highest place, then there is no more distinctions for God’s grace. It also means that God’s forgiveness is available forever. It means God is still desiring to share Heaven with all of creation and is still beckoning us to enter into His presence. And it is available for everyone. Everyone has opportunity to be with God and there is no law that can undermine the grace shown in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
