Well that’s the gospel in a nutshell and that’s simple enough. What about Galatians 2, because it speaks of a different dimension? Are you ready to do this? Okay. Galatians 2; let’s call this first one here, let’s call verse 1 up here simple salvation, number one. I’ll take an order of number one, please. All right. Galatians, Galatians 2:19 through 21; and no, I wasn’t going to write that out.

It’s too long. So let’s read it together. Let’s see what it says here. Paul says, “For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live;” Worth, by the way at some point we will translate this from the Greek to show you how when he says, “I’m crucified,” these words are in the perfect.

He says, “This work that was done, as long as I stay connected in faith, I am crucified with Christ.” And as Romans 6:6 declares, I’ve gone into that same death with Him, but I’ve also risen with Him to walk in newness of life; same writer, same hand of God spelling out the full picture for us. Let me move along here because I think this one I just read to you is self-evident. He says,

“The one who love loved me.”

This action here in verse, in chapter 1 it says here, “He gave Himself for our sins.” Here it says, “The one who loved me,” agape, uncalculated. He didn’t look at Paul and say, “Listen, you’ve tortured too many Christians,” or, “You’ve done too many legalist things.” “The one who loved me,” unconditionally; it’s just little angles here. What’s the next one? The next one I’ve put up on the board for you says 3, Galatians 3:1 through 3.

We taught on these verses. “Oh foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”
