Romans 2:1-5 There are many that are deceived about their standing with God. The basis of their deception is peace with God through their good works. Paul addresses this lie and points us to Jesus as the only grounds of peace with God.
Colossians 2.16-23 Legalists will always be in the church. It was true for the church in Colossae and it’s true of the church today. The temptation is to look and label others without reflecting, confessing, and repenting of the legalism in our own hearts.
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 5:1-6. Legalism always demands more. Paul gives the example of an unrelenting weight of a yoke upon the neck of those that abide by it. In contrast, Jesus brings freedom to those so that they may not be a slave to the law.
