Faith Working Through Love
Paul has given his biography and theology, now he moves into ethics. What we do is driven by what we believe. When you believe God loves you so much that He sent His Son to die for you, the result is liberty. This is an objective liberty grounded in Jesus’ glad work on the cross. Therefore the identity of a Christian is unshakeable. Stand fast in it and the result is faith working in love that rejects bondage, waits for the righteousness to come, and embraces the scandal of the cross.
