Paul’s teaching is salvation by grace through faith unto good works. The false teaching he fights is salvation by your good works. What purposes does Paul give for the Law of Moses?
In Genesis 18 and 22, we read that God would work in such a way that through Abraham “… All nations of the earth shall be blessed”.
Here is a fundamental truth of why we believe that the scriptures, old and new testaments, testify and point to Jesus.
Paul draws from Genesis directly,
“So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.”
We are blessed in Jesus!
He became a curse for us so that we would get blessing.
What a Saviour we have, Hallelujah!
* Father God,
You worked such that through Abraham Your love would be shown to all nations.
Hallelujah, Lord, we thank You for this and praise You.
We look forward to that day when we can meet Abraham in glory.
What a day that will be!
