Secure in Your Justification

February 11, 2018 Speaker: Matt Maka

Topic: The Gospel Scripture: Galatians 2:20

Hello Christ Church Family,

Here are some application questions that I hope will help you apply yesterday’s message. Enjoy!


  1. Pray and ask the Spirit to fill you afresh. 
  2. Read Galatians 2:15-21
  3. Reread Galatians 2:15-16. What 3 different words/phrases are repeated multiple times?
  4. What is Justification? What are the two things you need in order to be justified?  
  5. Read Psalm 143:1-2 and compare it to the last part of Galatians 2:16. What did the psalmist and Paul both agree on?  
  6. What are the 4 things Paul believes that gives him security in his justification?



  1. What “works of the law” are you tempted to believe will impress God and get you closer to Him?
  2. What life circumstances and/or personal sins cause you to doubt the stregnth your right standing/relationship with God?
  3. How should/would your everyday life be impacted if you fully embraced the reality that “…it is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me”. 
  4. Where do you focus when you think about Jesus love for you; your work or His work? (“…who loved me and gave Himself for me.”)
  5. How would taking time each day to meditate on, savor, treasure and rejoice in Christ and Him crucified impact your believing in your justification and His love for you?
