Lessons for
Living
"But even if we or an
angel from heaven
should preach to you a
gospel contrary to the
one we preached to you,
let him be accursed."
(Galatians 1:8)
Paul reminds us in I
Corinthians 15 that the
Gospel is "that Christ died
for our sins according
to the scriptures;...was
buried,...and rose again
the third day...." Didn't the
Galatian Christians believe
this? Yes, they did, but they
became confused about
the personal application of
this truth to their own lives.
They believed the error
that they also had to keep
the law rather than simply
place their trust in Christ
and what He accomplished.
We also are accursed if
we make salvation the
result of works, church
attendance or ordinances,
or something else.
Remember! We are saved
if we simply place our faith
in Jesus Christ and what
He did on Calvary's cross
for us--nothing more and
nothing less.
