In a day when many are being led into false legal teachings, the letter to the Galatians is particularly relevant and gives us the great charter of our freedom in Christ. People are told that both the Law and the Gospel came from God and are therefore good. May we not mingle them to obtain something better than either? The letter to the Galatians gives the answer to this interesting and important question. It is a resounding 'No!' Law says, 'You shall not allow a single weed to grow in your garden. 'But, more,' it says, 'You shall not permit any seed of a weed to be there!' But they are there, everywhere. Thus, the Law hopelessly condemns us. It has a curse for all those under it.
The Gospel is God’s one remedy for the lost. It has a curse for all who would change it. It is fearful thing to poison the well of salvation. Anything beside the Gospel is really contrary to it.
