Gal 1 to 3 Paul and the Galatians
Paul arrives in Galatia and is horrified to learn that they had deserted the faith. He asks them bluntly, did you receive Christ by doing the works of the Law or by believing? Remember that Abraham didn’t have the Law! He was, and we are justified by faith, not by the works of the Law.
Paul reminded them that like him, they should be able to say: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. [Gal 2:20 KJV] That is the testimony of a transformed believer. It is the life verse of a believer; Our life verse is the gospel in a nutshell.
