Four results of faith in Christ, based on Galatians 3:24-27:
- We are free from the law (Gal. 3:24-25). The function of the law is to show us our sin and need for a Savior. Once a person comes to Christ through faith, the law is no longer necessary.
- We are adopted into God's family (Gal. 3:26). Christians are sons, not slaves, and thus have a sense of belonging and access to all of God's incredible riches (Gal. 4:6-7).
- We identify wtih Christ (Gal. 3:27). The believer is placed into Christ and enjoys the benefits of Christ's accomplishments and privileges.
- We are made righteousness (Gal. 3:24). The repentant sinner who places their faith in Christ is justified. This means being declared legally righteous in the eyes of God.
