PAUL'S EPISTLE TO THE GALATIANS is called the charter of Christian freedom. In it Paul proclaims the reality of believers' liberty in Christ-freedom from the law and the power of sin, and freedom to serve the living Lord.As you study this letter, you will discover that Paul's message to the Galatians is the same for us: "You are free from the law; salvation is by faith alone. But that means you are free to serve Christ. Don't leave the slavery of the law only to become slaves of sin!" We have been freed to serve the risen Christ.Written by the team who designed and wrote the "Life Application Bible," this commentary series is factually accurate, theologically sound, and intensely practical.
