Free At Last

Galatians 4:1-31

How people end up trapped in legalism…

  1. They choose activity over intimacy.
    Galatians 4:2-3
    Legalism always focuses on the external activity at the expense of inner spiritual intimacy.
  2. They exchange freedom for familiarity.
    Galatians 4:9-11
    No one pursues legalism; it pursues you.
  3. They fail to recognize the motives of legalists.
    Galatians 4:17
    Holiness isn’t the way to Jesus; Jesus is the way to holiness.

Guardrails:

  • Evaluate based solely upon the authority of Scripture.

Red Flags:

  • You criticize change consistently.
  • You pressure others to resist change

What do we do?

Separate from legalists.
Galatians 4:30-31
