In this passage from the book of Galatians, Paul defends the truth of justification by faith. He argues against the supposition of legalists that if men are not given rules to live by, they will only continue to live in sinful disobedience to God. Paul explains that when we are unified with Christ through faith, we are forever changed. We are adopted into God’s family, sealed for eternity, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Our motivation to fight sin and pursue righteousness is not fear or a belief that we are saved by our good works–our motivation is love for the Savior.
