Sermon Notes: 3/13 True Identity #3

OPEN: Dana Carvey: Master of Disguise: 2002
Matthew 22:11 tells us
“when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment.” The King was amazed and asked the man “‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” (Matthew 22:12-13) 

WELCOME: To our Third week in the Galatians Identity Series:

  • Identity is Your Choice – Galatians 1
  • Choose to Stand in the Gap like King Leonidas – Don’t budge to false teaching for even an instant. – Galatians 2

Galatians 3:27 tells us “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

Colossians 2:12 says: we’ve “been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him THROUGH FAITH in the powerful working of God, who raised Him from the dead.”

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel” (Galatians 1:6)

“if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law. But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin.” (Galatians 3:21-22)
“Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Then he says “Certainly not!” Galatians 3:21
“The law was our guardian until Christ came” (Galatians 3:24)
Psalm 14:1 declared “There is no one who does good.” And Romans 3:23 echoed that by saying “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Charles Spurgeon once noted: “Morality will keep you out of jail, but only the blood of Jesus will keep you out of hell.”
“Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.” (Acts 22:16)
Acts 2:38 Peter told the crowds: “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

“For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.” 12 But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us.” – Galatians 3:10-13
