The Holy Spirit in Galatians

GALATIANS (AD 48-50) The Holy Spirit in Galatians emphasizes the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation. Membership fee is zero but the Maintenance fee costs you everything. Galatians was written to counter false teaching about Christianity and the law and the relationship between faith and works.

  • We GRACIOUSLY received Him by Faith


Gal.3:1-2 "O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? 2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?"

  •  We are MATURED by the Spirit


Gal. 3:3 "Are you so foolish? Having begun with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh?"     

  • WE are TRANSFORMED by the Spirit


Gal. 3:5 "Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?"


  • We gained all PROMISES by the Spirit

Gal. 3:13-14"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "Cursed be every one who hangs on a tree" -- 14 that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."   


  • We enter into SONSHIP by the Spirit

Gal 4:6 "And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!'"     

  • We can WALK VICTORIOUSLY by the Spirit


Gal 5:16 "But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh."
