"For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation." Galatians 6:15
I. We must know that we are not part of the world system
A. Not legalism
B. Not lawlessness
II. We are citizens and children of the new creation
"But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells." 2 Peter 3:13
"For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love." Galatians 5:6
A. What changes do we have to do to defeat the legalism and lawlessness in our lives?

III. How should we then live?
A. Come to the “Learning How to Succeed At Life” seminar on January 9th at 10 AM
