In this passage, Paul continues to remind the Galatians that as sons of the promise they are free in Christ. To turn back to the Law and a works-based religion would make them slaves rather than sons. As believers, we can face this same temptation, thinking that what we do affects our standing before God. Freedom and grace are found only in Christ. Are you trusting in your work and obedience, or in the finished work of Jesus Christ? Are you living as a slave, or as a son?
