Galatians 3:23-29

3:23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, confined for the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 3:24 So that the law has become our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 3:25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. 3:26 For you are all children of God, through faith in Christ Jesus. 3:27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 3:29 If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to promise.

So nice to be back. I’d like to develop a habit to post a verse here every morning on arriving at work. Let’s see.

These bits of Scripture that appeal to me: I want to stay with them, look into the Greek or the Hebrew, learn them and carry them with me, have them sink into me properly. All in time.

  1. Hey Ivan! Good to have you back! These verses show how the Law (the one given to Moses on Mount Sinai back in Exodus 20 and also found in Leviticus and Deuteronomy were there to “lead us to the time of Christ.” They were according to Paul showed him what sin was. (Romans 7:7). Much in the OT was the type while Jesus was the Antitype (particularly check out the Tabernacle furnishings). But as verse 25 says, “now that faith has come we no longer need the tutor.” Sort of like your son needing a tutor for History but once he “gets it” that tutor is no longer needed. Now that Christ has arrived and fulfilled all that needed to be done for our salvation, the Law is no longer needed. Reckon that is enough preaching for now. LOL

    Again…it is good to have you back.
