Walking Through the Epistles | 5. Peter’s Hypocrisy & Paul’s Rebuke

February 13, 2020

Galatians 2:6-21. Here are the concluding thoughts.
• We may differ in our responsibilities, our abilities & skills may be different, the call of God may be different in our lives. But one is not greater than the other. We are all equal in Christ.
• We must be willing to accept and include all kind of people. What God has already cleansed, we must not call unclean.
• Be courageous like Paul to make corrections and be submissive as Peter to accept corrections.
• Grace doesn't make room for us to live in sin, grace doesn't make us guilty of not following the law, we are made guilty and sinful if we rebuild those laws once we rejected.
• Law says, you can be justified and made righteous by works. But grace says, you can be justified and made righteous by having faith in Christ Jesus.
• Law leads to death, but faith in Christ leads to life.
