There were 430 years between the promise given to Abraham and the Law given to Moses. Why is this so important? And the Law was ordained by angels, but why is this such a big deal?
Find out in my latest message on Galatians 3 in our series called, “Liberated!” Here, I examine the main function of the Law and its relevance in the life of believers. And I unpack the concept of being “clothed with Christ,” which speaks to our closeness to Him and His indwelling presence within us.
Uncovering these powerful themes will deepen your understanding of the Gospel and its implications for your life. And it will inspire you to embrace the freedom and righteousness that are freely given to you.
