Wesley's Notes for Galatians 2:19

2:19 For I through the law - Applied by the Spirit to my heart, and deeply convincing me of my utter sinfulness and helplessness. Am dead to the law - To all hope of justification from it. That I may live to God - Not continue in sin. For this very end am I, in this sense, freed from the law, that I may be freed from sin.

People's Bible Notes for Galatians 2:19

Ga 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law. Compare and see notes on Ro 7:4-6 Col 2:20. When the knowledge of Christ came, and he saw his faulty obedience to the law, he realized that he was dead in sin, slain by the law. That I might live unto God. But having died, he was freed from the law, when he became a new creature in Christ.

Discussion for Galatians 2

    I think that God in His perfect love knew Faith will play an important role in our lives, and as Paul speaks to the Galatians family, the same God who the Jews worshipped, He instilled in Paul's heart to preach to the Gentiles, and prove Himself faithful, that none shall perish. Jesus Christ died for the whole world... God is no Respecter of person, Grace was given for all mankind. Faith walk.
  • MockingBird for verse 20
    When I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior I was crucified with Christ : As to this day I am crucifying the flesh daily : I have been raised together with Him set with Him in heavenly places : Nevertheless , even though I died I live : Yet not I but Christ liveth in me and the life that I now live I live by the faith His faith : the gift of God who loved me and still loves me : and gave Himself for me. Praise God I am alive to God : I am alive to doing things through Him !!!

    Jesus have come to give us life in abundance. We are saved by his grace as God's grace are sufficient enough for us to be saved. Our Faith comes only by hearing the word of God as God's words are powerful to meditate than prayers. Jesus is the bread of life and the light of the world He who believes in him will not be perish but have an everlasting life. What a promising God and what a faithful Father to his words given for us. Jesus made everything new our job now is to believe in him, follow him and obey his words. He who loves him will keep his commandments. Thanks to Jesus for his blood that shed for us. Through his precious blood only our sins are washed away, our ungodly things are cleansed. We need only to trust Jesus and live like him until rapture. I will keep praising God and thank him for he is worthy to be praised. Amen
  • Paul Says Were are crusified with christ ,is true because he himself was an apostle of the Lord, galatians 2:20 teaches us that christ died once and for all, hence we should belief in christ our saviour who paid the price for sin, by our faith should we know that we were crusified with HIM
  • Naas immelman for verse 20
    I am sure that all the children of God now lives in Jesus Christ,although still in the flesh, by His faith.He is the New testament arch,as Noah was in the arch we are in Jesus Christ therefor nothing can divide us ever from Him again.
  • This is Romans 6-8, condensed into one verse. Notice the first half of the verse summarizes our death and resurrection with Christ. But the latter half of the verse focuses on our life of faith in Christ as our enabler. Progressive sanctification or, we could say, the resurrected life is by faith. That doesn t mean we sit back passively and do nothing. It means we trust our Lord to enable us in our doing! Paul makes very clear that sanctification is by faith.
