This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 4 From The Book of Galatians Is: Galatians
1. 3:19-24. Paul seems to have made light of
the law. How does he state its purpose
in this passage?
2. In what way does 3:25-4:7 demonstrate the
amazing privileges and position of a Christian? Make a list of them in your own
Notes. 3:19, 20. 'Added because of transgressions': i.e., the
law gave to sin the form of transgression and so made men conscious of guilt
before God when they sinned. Cf. Rom. , 20; ; 7:7, 13.
'it was ordained by angels
through an intermediary': Paul introduces these words to show that the promise
is superior to the Law even in the very manner of its promulgation. In the case
of Abraham God Himself spoke the promises directly, whereas the giving of the
law was through intermediaries on both sides--God being represented by angels.
(cf. Dt. 33:2, LXX; Act ;
Heb. 2:2), and the people by Moses.
