Galatians 3 v15-20Tuesday 13th October

Paul highlights God's covenant to Abraham and explains that Christ is the promised offspring that brought God's blessing to the world. His sacrifice on the cross fulfilled the temporary measures of the law, atoning for sin once and for all.
Galatians 3 v15-20

Galatians 3:15–20

The Law and the Promise

15 To give a human example, brothers:1 even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified. 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ. 17 This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void. 18 For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.

19 Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. 20 Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.
