Sat 5/30An Outline of the Book of Galatians - The Gospel of Freedom

Galatians 5:1 "It was for freedom that Christ set us free; thereforekeep standing firm and do not be subject again to ayoke of slavery."

Yesterday we introduced the reader to the book of Galatians, stating that it's main theme is: "The Gospel of Freedom". After making some introductory remarks and tracing through the epistle this overall theme, the aim of today's post is to offer an outline of Paul's letter. The hope is that the outline with give the reader a sense of how much the Gospel liberates those who by grace through faith trust in Jesus and who continue to go forth in their process of sanctification, preserved by God to the end.
