“At the center of ‘sin’ is that proud, perpendicular pronoun ‘I’! There it is, unbent and unbowed, the assertion of self in rebellion and revolt against a holy God.” — David L. Larsen (“The Transformation of a Terrorist,” p.33, The Voice From the Cross)

Ah, but there is good news!

  • I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:19)
  • We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. (Romans 6:6)
  • But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14)

“Seeing” Galatians

Here’s a chart that I developed for the New Testament book of Galatians.  After a great deal of analysis (taking the pieces apart) it is always helpful to work hard at synthesis (putting the pieces back together).  That is the pathway we must walk in constructing such book charts.  This kind of work always helps me “see” a book, its content and its movements.
