Faith Working Through Love (Gal. 5:1-6)

In Galatians 5 and 6, Paul appeals to the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer as further proof for the gospel of justification by faith. He demonstrates that only faith working through love, as a result of the freedom that comes from the gospel of grace, counts for anything. However circumcision and uncircumcision – both religion and irreligion, legalism and liberalism – ultimately are worthless. Salvation is found in Christ and in Him alone. In this sermon, Pastor Matt looks at Paul’s devastating conclusions about works-righteousness and explores the reward and reality of our faith: “For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness” (Gal. 5:5).
