Faith and Sanctification

For the nourishment of my own soul I’ve recently been listening to Thomas Schreiner’s 2007 sermon series through Galatians. The series is very good (and his new commentary on Galatians is superb).

Not surprising, Schreiner sees in Galatians 3:1–3 a very important passage for properly understanding the Christian life.

Here’s the passage:

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?

Schreiner expounds its importance of this passage nicely in a 6-minute clip taken from his sermon “Faith From First to Last.” I commend this excerpt for your own meditation.
