Flashcards in Galatians 3 Verses Deck (29):
Quote Galatians 3:1.
You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.
Quote Galatians 3:2.
I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard?
Quote Galatians 3:3.
Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?
Quote Galatians 3:4.
Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain?
Quote Galatians 3:5.
So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
Quote Galatians 3:6.
So also Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
Quote Galatians 3:7.
Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.
Quote Galatians 3:8.
Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you."
Quote Galatians 3:9.
So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
Quote Galatians 3:10.
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”
Quote Galatians 3:11.
Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.”
Quote Galatians 3:12.
The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.”
Quote Galatians 3:13.
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
Quote Galatians 3:14.
He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
Quote Galatians 3:15.
Brothers and sisters, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case.
Quote Galatians 3:16.
The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ.
Quote Galatians 3:17.
What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise.
Quote Galatians 3:18.
For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but God in his grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.
Quote Galatians 3:19.
Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator.
Quote Galatians 3:20.
A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one.
Quote Galatians 3:21.
Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.
Quote Galatians 3:22.
But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
Quote Galatians 3:23.
Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed.
Quote Galatians 3:24.
So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith.
Quote Galatians 3:25.
Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
Quote Galatians 3:26.
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,
Quote Galatians 3:27.
for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Quote Galatians 3:28.
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
