Strength To Keep The Faith  

Galatians 3:1-7 (NASB)
1  You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified?
2  This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
3  Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
4  Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?
5  So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
6  Even so Abraham BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
7  Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham.

1.     The Cross Of God Reminds Us To Return To Faith 

Galatians 3:1 (NASB)
1  You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified?

2.     The Spirit Of God Enables Us To Progress In Faith

Galatians 3:2-4 (NASB)
2  This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
3  Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
4  Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

3.     The Promises Of God The Father Encourage Us To Trust In Faith

Galatians 3:5 (NASB)
5  So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? 

Galatians 3:6-9 (NASB)
6  Even so Abraham BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
7  Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham.
8  The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU."
9  So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.

4.     The Son Of God Redeems Believers From The Curse By Faith

Galatians 3:10-12 (NASB)
10  For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM."
11  Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, "THE RIGHTEOUS MAN SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
12  However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, "HE WHO PRACTICES THEM SHALL LIVE BY THEM."

Galatians 3:13-14 (NASB)
13  Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE"—
14  in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
