Reading Galatians With Charles Spurgeon


DAY 10: GALATIANS 5:1-15

By Grace Through Faith

Spurgeon’s notes on 5:6

All ways of justification by human works and outward forms are set aside by the apostle. In one sentence he closes up every road that is cast up by man and opens up the way of the Lord, even the way of salvation by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. Some hope to be saved by ritualism. On the other hand, many are relying on their freedom from all ceremonies and place their reliance upon a sort of antiritualism. The outward—whether decorated or unadorned, fixed or free—touches not the saving point. The only thing which can save us is faith in Jesus Christ, whom God has set forth as a propitiation for sin.
