How many times have we thought, “if I had the ability to harm you I would.”

“If I could I'd buy your company and fire you”

“When I get to be the group leader they are out”


Galatians 3:23-26 NAS 23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed. 24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor (KJV schoolmaster) to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

  • In a kingdom the heirs of the kingdom are trained by trustworthy servants.

  • The law is that trustworthy servant who properly raises us to act like a king’s child.

    • A child that will carry on the rule of the kingdom in the exact way their father does


Justified (Strong’s) dikaios (dik'-ah-yos); equitable (in character or act); to render just or innocent; by implication, innocent, holy.

Romans 2:12-13 NAS 12 For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law; 13 for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified.
