Let Moses Lead You to Jesus
23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. 24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.
Most people think that God’s law, given to us through Moses, was designed to motivate us to be good and earn God’s favor by our obedience. Galatians 3:23-29 teaches that the law of Moses was given to declare God’s holiness, our sinfulness, and our need of a savior. To truly come to Christ we must first come to terms with the law of Moses. This amazing passage will teach you how to face your sin and embrace the lasting hope available to you only through faith in Jesus Christ.
