Stand Firm in Freedom (Galatians 5:1)
Scripture: Galatians 5:1–5:1
This pivotal verse explicates some key themes and issues in Galatians. These include freedom, standing firm, and resisting the temptation to go back to law-works. False teachers consistently demand that people submit to them as lawgivers. The "yoke of slavery" is law-keeping to try to be justified and sanctified. The meaning of binding and loosing as taught in Matthew 16:19 is explained and applied. The issue of Sabbath keeping and the nature of Jesus' yoke is taught and applied.
