Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.
Dear Warrior Poet,
Jesus did not come to rescue us for heaven someday, but to rescue us presently from this age we presently live. Legalism is anything that we place as a standard or rule to be right with God other than faith in Jesus’ sacrificial atonement and bodily resurrection. The false hope of being better and trying harder will never rescue us—the false gods of progress, prosperity and education will never supplant the need for an all sufficient Savior. Accept no substitutes.
