Have you wondered how the Law (the Ten Commandments) fits in with the Gospel declaration that we are saved by faith and not by works of the law? Huge parts of Christendom confuse us by failing to clarify the purpose of the Law. This confusion relates closely to the matter Paul is attempting to spell out in his letter to the Galatian churches, the recipients of this letter. Today we join Paul in attempting to explain the purpose of the Law and its relationship to the Gospel.
