Witnessing Through The Book of Galatians

Using Galatians As A Witnessing Resource

The Book of Galatians was written by the apostle Paul and was most likely the first book that he wrote (probably 48-49 AD). Paul wrote this letter from Antioch of Syria. The Judiazers had infiltrated the church and were perverting the Gospel of Christ. Not only were they spreading heresy throughout the church, they were attacking the authority and credibility of the apostle Paul. The Book of Galatians is a direct response to this situation. Paul also wrote this book to reaffirm that salvation comes through grace through faith. He also wrote to correct the errors of legalism and to discuss the reality of true Christian liberty. The Judiazers were telling the Galatian believers that they were saved by grace through faith + keeping the Law. Paul refuted this heresy head-on and told them it was Jesus + nothing that brought salvation (Galatians 2:16). The Seventh Day Adventists of our time are synonymous to the Judiazers of Paul’s day. Therefore, this would be a perfect book so share with a Seventh Day Adventists who are dogmatic that salvation comes through Christ and keeping the Ten Commandments. Based on the premise of Salvation is needed; Salvation has been provided; Salvation must be accepted, let’s look at a few of the verses from the Book of Galatians and find some ways to lead others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ… Salvation is needed:; 3:22; But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 3:10-11; For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. [11] But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 2:16, Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 2:21; I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Salvation has been provided: 3:13: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 4:4-5: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, [5] To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. Salvation must be accepted: 3:14: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
