This morning I am continuing my series on the book of Galatians. In chapter 3 the Apostle Paul gets pretty blunt with the Galatian church concerning their foolishness in trying to go back to a works orientated relationship with God. In fact he calls them foolish. Unfortunately in the church today, many Christians have not heeded the warnings given by the Apostle Paul and they are doing the same thing as the Galatian Christians were doing in his day. They are still trying to come up with some type of works that will allow them to feel as though they are pleasing God.
Why Were The Galatians Foolish?
Paul addresses 3 issues in Galatians 3:1-9. He talks about the picture or portrayal of Jesus crucified that was explained to them. He talks about the fact that miracles do not come from works of the flesh or trying to get God to give you a miracle by doing works and finally, he talks about how we walk in the blessing of Abraham by faith and not works of the law.
