Galatians Words ~ Word 15: New


Galatians Words ~ Word 15: New

With today’s word we have journeyed through the entire book of Galatians. Hopefully you have a better understanding of this book through the 15 key words we have explored.

In Galatians we have seen that by grace alone through faith in Christ alone we are justified and reconciled to God. This is the good news of the gospel of grace. We put our faith in Christ as a result of hearing and believing this gospel. We are now called to live God's way of life in response to His giving us His Son, who gave his life for us. Jesus Christ died for us, so that we would be free from the burdens of sin and the law. Through faith in Him we are now children of God who share in the promises of God and who receive the promise of the Spirit. As His children we have been crucified with Christ and live in the freedom He provides. That freedom is our call to imitate Christ: to love and serve others through acts of good works by the power of the Holy Spirit. Our lives have been transformed. In Christ we are a new creation.

Paul summerizes his entire letter in this verse:

"Neither circumcision or uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation." Galatians 6:15

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; The old has gone the new has come!"  2 Corinthians 5:17

Remember who you are; a new creation in Christ!

Thank you for joining me in this journey through the book of Galatians. It has been inspiring and encouraging to see how you have responded to God's Word creatively in your posts on Instagram and in the Words Facebook group. My next Words Challenge will be in December for our sixth Advent Words Challenge.

I will be polling the Facebook group to get feedback regarding the new every other day format I used on this challenge. If you are not in the Facebook group, please feel free to give your feedback in the comments below.
