In the passage we’ll be studying today from Galatians 5, Paul says, “Stand fast therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. And be not entangled again, with the yoke of bondage.” So, Pastor Ford will explain what he means is that the law doesn’t empower us, it enslaves us. And if we try to follow the law, we end up with legalism, rather than liberty.
