The Wrong Arm of the Law: Episode 2

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, scalebut Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20

Navigating between Christian Liberty and Legalism

We are Saved by Faith in the Son of God; therefore we now live for him and not for ourselves  (Romans 12:1-2).

Notes for today’s episode:

Christian Liberty

  • Christians tend to error to one side or the other by taking either Christian Liberty or Legalism to an extreme.  We are no longer bound by the law; however our Liberty in Christ is not a license to sin.

2 Corinthians 3:17

  •  Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty

Galatians 4:28-31/Galatians 5:1

  •  We are free from the Bondage of the Law for Salvation

Christian Liberty is not cheap

Acts 20:28

Freedom and Liberty is never cheap

Christian Liberty is:

  • Freedom from the guilt of Sin
  • Freedom from the Wrath of God
  • Freedom from the Curse of the Law
  • Freedom from the Bondage and Dominion of Sin

Romans 6:14

Christian Liberty is Not:

A License to Sin

Romans 6:6-18

We are not bound by the law

John 1:17

Romans 10:4-10

  • The Law hasn’t been abolished
