People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:27

Ga 3:27 For. He now shows how their faith acted to bring them into Christ. As Dr. Schaff says, "Faith always implies surrender". Faith leads to obedience. The believer is baptized into Christ, and being found in him has put on Christ. Being in Christ, a member of his body, a part of the Son, the believer becomes a child of God. Compare Ro 6:3 1Co 10:2 Mt 28:19. Schaff, in loco, says: ``The baptized is surrounded by Christ and covered by his merits. . . . The figure of putting on Christ as a new dress afterwards gave rise to the custom of wearing white baptismal garments.''

    Brian; I think you're not understanding something about "in the Name of Jesus" and "in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Read Psalm 2 for example, and we see that we are commanded to "Kiss the Son;" which means, "The only Name given among men whereby we must be saved." That doesn't put Him above or apart from the Father and the Holy Spirit; but is part of the whole.

    The law requires a sacrifice. Faith is a gift. Gifts are given. God gave Jesus was given and not demanding he gave himself he gave his life he gave his love he gave his life by faith we accept all three and now we are free because of the faith of Abraham and his love the word god. All of us who are in Christ are the Seed of Abraham and Jesus was referred to as the Seed of Abraham. Faith is the sub

    In Phil. 2:2, 5 we are invited: “Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind… Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…” God wants us to be one with Him, to live in our hearts and minds. “Abide in me, and I in you. John 15:4". “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you...? 1Co 6:19"
  • Brother Daniel FC
    Say Brian, I think you re confusing UNITY with MULTIPLE PERSONALITY: God the Father, Jesus His only begotten Son and the Holy Spirit can think and act as ONE because of their perfect mind but none of them suffer of multiple personality disorder, as you maintain. Read John 17, the most beautiful prayer in the Bible: Is Jesus praying to Himself?
  • Ray321
    Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. The unsaved will be under the law, they will be judged by God. Believers in Christ Jesus is not under the law, because we Jesus paid the price on the cross, but it doesn't give us license to break the law or sin.
  • Thembi
    Being justified by faith we have peace with God! No works of the law can make us holy, its amazing that other laws we discard but the law of tithing we continue preach as form of justification.Cursed is everyone who continue in the law and not faith.
