Sunday Sermon Outline: Galatians 5:1-12

“Freedom in Christ”
Galatians 5:1-12

Introduction: 2 Peter 2:18-20

I.  Justification by Law vs. 1-4
     “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. 2 Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law. 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.” 

Acts 15:1, 5; Galatians 1:6-7; 2:3-5, 18, 21; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 3:3

II. Justification by Faith vs. 5-6
     “For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.” 

Titus 2:13; 2 Peter 3:13; Acts 15:8-11; Galatians 3:24-29

III. Judgment on False Teachers vs. 7-12 
     “You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. 10 I have confidence in you in the Lord, that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is. 11 But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished. 12 Would that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselves.” 

John 18:38; 17:17; 7:22-23; Leviticus 12:3; Deuteronomy 23:1

Conclusion: Galatians 6:12-15; John 12:48; 8:31-32
