Paul concludes his letter to the Galatian believers reminding them that there is only one thing worth boasting in, because there is only one thing that has secured every blessing we have: the cross of Jesus Christ.
As the Spirit works in our lives, we bear the fruit of people who restore those who sin and give generously to the work of God. All of this points to the importance of the role of other believers in our lives.
Paul instructs believers to live a life that keeps in step with the Spirit. What does that mean and how do we do it? That’s the subject of this message.
Jesus came to set us free. We forfeit freedom when we add anything to Jesus. We deny freedom when we continue to walk in sin. In this sermon, we will study what it means to be set free.
Freedom is found in Christ by relying on His Spirit. Once this happens we will grow in Christ-likeness.
Jesus, who was born in Bethlehem, raised in Nazareth, crucified on a Roman cross and rose on the third day, is the King over all the universe.
We can unsay with our practical church culture what we profess to believe in our official church doctrine.
Paul tells the churches in Galatia that he and the apostles share one message, and that message is: Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
Our story reveals to us our past grace, present grace, and future grace.
Whoever’s approval you seek, will shape the person you’ll be.
The reason counterfeits are so effective is that they imitate enough about the real things to confuse people. Counterfeit gospels do the same. We need to know what THE gospel is so we can learn to spot the counterfeits.
The Galatians are torn. They have heard two different messages about what it means to be a Christian. Paul takes up the pen to set the record straight and to uphold the gospel.
