We must first get free, and then we must remain free, in order that we might be free.


In terms of our thinking, we must get free from the *curse of the law (because of the weakness of the flesh) and we must also remain free from the curse of the law (because of the weakness of the flesh) in order that we might experience freedom from the curse of the law. If we should get free, but do not remain free, then we cannot be free. Continue in freedom.

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." (Galatians 5:1)

We begin by a finished work salvation and we continue in a finished work sanctification - having begun in the Spirit we also continue in the Spirit by faith. Such a sanctification is both positional and progressive and then, one day, ultimate - and all through the Spirit of God. Because we are free in our position we can be free in our experience. We can only get free, remain free, and be free to the degree that we think with a finished work orientation.


"Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?] Are you so foolish and so senseless and so silly? Having begun [your new life spiritually] with the [Holy] Spirit, are you now reaching perfection [by dependence] on the flesh? Have you suffered so many things and experienced so much all for nothing (to no purpose)—if it really is to no purpose and in vain? Then does He Who supplies you with His marvelous [Holy] Spirit and works powerfully and miraculously among you do so on [the grounds of your doing] what the Law demands, or because of your believing in and adhering to and trusting in and relying on the message that you heard?" (Galatians 3:2-5 Amplified)


This passage in Galatians 3 clearly reveals that the finished work gospel of grace does not merely pertain to our salvation only, but also and to all aspects of sanctification and the fruit of Christian living.



"Christianity is not the sacrifice we make, but the sacrifice that we trust." - P.T. Forsyth
