"I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
Paul told the Galatian people that they had been freed by God’s grace. He saw how they had relied solely on the inestimable value of the sacrificial death of Christ for freedom from their sins. It was enough! But their freedom was brought into question by legalists who devalued Christ’s sacrifice. They insisted that the price of
freedom included the added tax of the law. In other words, they still owed something. It was as though Christ’s death was for nothing because they were trying to pay extra fees through adherence to the law!
Your debt has been paid in full, dear friend.
God's grace through Jesus' death is priceless.Grace + nothing = everything! Grace + anything = nothing.
