Galatians 2:16 (NLT)
And yet we Jewish Christians know that we become right with God, not by doing what the law commands, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be accepted by God because of our faith in Christ—and not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be saved by obeying the law.

God promised Abraham a savior. God gave Moses the laws 430 years later to keep the people guarded until Jesus came. When Jesus realized God's promise on earth, the old system of the law was no longer needed. According to the old law, people were cursed if they didn't follow the law. But when Jesus died on the cross, He became sin and was cursed for us. "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree" (Galatians 3:13 NLT).

So now that faith in Christ has come, we no longer need the law as our guardian. We are all children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, we are united in Christ, and there is no more Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female—we are one in Christ Jesus. Once we belong to Christ, we are true children of Abraham. We are his heirs, and now all the promises God gave to him belong to us (vv. 9-29).

The message is, all humans alike, are saved by the grace of God through our faith in Jesus Christ. This was God's plan from the beginning; it is the same now, and will never change. The only thing we have to do is accept Jesus in our hearts and have faith in Him. He already did the rest to save us.
