<175> Thesis: The mystery of our unity with Christ is the actual basis for all of our relationship issues with God. Introduction: This evening we begin a new paragraph in our studies of Paul's message of legitimate faith. In the previous paragraph, Paul's point was that, though the Law has no direct bearing upon our participation in "the inheritance", its function was, nonetheless, a "justifying function" in that its purpose was to compel us to seek justification by a method not associated with the details of how we act. So, in an indirect way, the Law was designed to bring us to justification by completely locking us out of that possibility by its own principles. This evening we are going to look, again, into Paul's argument about how we can be "justified by faith".
