The Spirit Wins!!!Posted: August 27, 2012
As we get ready to bring our Galatians series to a close, I just want to highlight a very important aspect of the gospel.
The gospel is Jesus rescues. Amen. Everyone who reads Paul’s letter to the Galatians with any comprehension understands this.
But what people often fail to realize is that Paul’s explanation of the gospel continues through chapter five. Paul’s explanation of the gospel includes his teaching on the Holy Spirit.
The gospel according to Paul is Jesus rescues and the Spirit wins. In the Spirit vs law contest, the Spirit wins. In the Spirit vs Sin contest, the Spirit wins.
The good news of the Gospel is that Jesus rescues us from evil and the Spirit empowers us to live the lives we are called to live.
