Saved By Works: Yours or Christ's?

July 2, 2023 Speaker: Eric Bancroft Series: Galatians

Passage: Galatians 5:2–12

You have to choose whose works will save you: Yours or Christ? You cannot choose both.

  1. Consider yourself warned (vv. 2-6)
  2. May the Lord see you through (vv. 7–12)

A Christian is a person who has fully trusted in Jesus Christ as the only Savior for the forgiveness of their sins. They now possess the Holy Spirit as a pledge of their inheritance in Christ. What happens when someone becomes a Christian:

  • They are justified. (Romans 5:1)
  • They are given eternal life. (John 3:16)
  • They are given and sealed by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • They are redeemed. (1 Peter 1:18-19)
  • They become a new creation. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • They are promised glorification. (Romans 8:30)
