James 2:1-4. Our fallen nature is to always classify and categorize people as important or unimportant when it comes to the kingdom. May we repent of being evil judges deciding who matters and who doesn’t.
Galatians 5:13-18. Paul writes the letter to the Galatians to swing them away from being justified by the law. However, Paul knows the tendency is to swing out of balance into sinful license. This is the balance for all believers, to swing to neither legalism or license, but to stay in liberty.
Galatians 3:6-9. The Judaizers were using Abraham as the model example of why all new Gentile believers should be circumcised to truly be a part of God’s family. Countering their argument, Paul uses Abraham to prove that he was justified before he was circumcised. Oh snap!
