A better translation of the phrase have you suffered so many things in vain may be "Have you had such wonderful spiritual experiences, all to no purpose? Paul wonders if all the gifts of the Spirit they had received would amount to no lasting value because now they try to walk by law, not by faith.
Gal Paul asks them to examine the source of the Spirit's work.
These classes are a clear and concise overview of who Christ is, how a person becomes a Christian, and how to meaningfully connect with the church. In the oldest Hebrew manuscripts the [ 10 ] entire work forms but one book. Hangs on a tree : In the thinking of ancient Israel, there was something worse than being put to death. Now that Jesus is our identity, that is more important than any prior identity we possessed. God had to give us His standard so we would not destroy ourselves before the Messiah came.
Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? He who supplies the Spirit to you : Who supplies the Holy Spirit?
Obviously, the Spirit is given as a gift from God. Does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? God supplies the Holy Spirit in response to faith.
Miracles are wrought by faith. Yet the Galatians have been deceived into thinking that real spiritual riches lie in pursuing God through a works relationship. By the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Paul repeats the phrase from Galatians , because he wants to emphasize there is a choice to be made.
Which will it be? Do you believe you will be blessed by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Will you earn and deserve your blessing from God, or will you believe and receive it? This speaks to those who see lack of blessing. Not from a lack of devotion, not because they haven't earned enough; but because they are not putting their faith, their joyful, confident expectation in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
This speaks to those who a wonderfully blessed.
For them to be proud is to be blind. They have not earned their blessing, why should they take pride in it? All the more they should look to Jesus, and put their expectation in Him. Gal How Abraham was made righteous before God. Just as Abraham : Among the Galatian Christians, the push towards a works-based relationship with God came from certain Christians who were born as Jews, and who claimed Abraham as their spiritual ancestor.
Therefore, Paul uses Abraham as an example of being right before God by faith , not by faith plus works.
Galatians ended with a question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit and see miracles among you by the work of the law, or by faith? Paul assumes the answer, being "Of course we received the Holy Spirit and have seen miracles through faith. Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness : Paul quotes here from Genesis It simply shows that righteousness was accounted to Abraham because he believed God.
It was not because he performed some work, and certainly not because he was circumcised, because the covenant of circumcision had not yet been given.
