Class #41: St. Paul has presented the truth of the believer’s justification through faith in Jesus Christ alone. He has made it clear that anyone who admits the bondage of the yoke of the law into the article of justification has “fallen away from grace” (5:4). Last of all, St. Paul tells the Galatians to remove the false teachers from the congregation.
Beginning with 5:13, St. Paul builds on this foundation of Christian freedom and directs the members to “Serve one another through love.” The Galatians are not to use their Christian freedom as a license(permission) to sin. St. Paul encourages and exhorts them to do true good works of love, which flow from faith.
