Living by Faith (Gal 2:17-21)

Having made the profound and astonishing claim that “by works of the law no one will be justified” (Gal. 2:16), Paul now moves into a further explanation of the doctrine of justification by faith. What exactly is the relationship between the gospel, the good news of salvation by grace alone through faith in Christ alone, and the works of the law? Does justification by faith promote lawlessness? And exactly how is a believer supposed to escape the condemnation of the law? In this sermon, Pastor Matt Bedzyk examines Paul’s defense of justification by faith alone and the Christian’s relationship to the law, and shows how we are to live “by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:20).
