Walking Free, pt 5 – “My confidence comes in Christ”

Galatians 2:11-21
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.
12 For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they
came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. 13 And the rest of
the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their
hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I
said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how
can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that a person is not
justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ
Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of
the law no one will be justified.
17 But if, in our endeavor to be justified in Christ, we too were found to be sinners, is Christ
then a servant of sin? Certainly not! 18 For if I rebuild what I tore down, I prove myself to be a
transgressor. 19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been
crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live
in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not
nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no
purpose.
