Galatians 2-3 2:16 God declares us right in His sight when we believe and receive Jesus’s payment for our sins. Justification occurs instantly. Justification is an act of God, not of man.

"Testing 1... 2... 3..." • Marty Buck (Guest Teacher) • 2018 August 19

1. Whether God caused "bad things" as punishment or allowed "bad things" as a test, both are designed to bring us closer to God. 2. "Bad things" are from the perspective of fallen humans, not from the creator. 3. Understanding is NOT a condition for obedience. 4. The world may be your location, but it is not the source of your truth. 5. Because of God's testing, the redeemed are going somewhere better than Eden. ••• Subscribe to listen each week as the Manna class learns and grows together...
