Galatians 5:16-26

Although the Bible is not a psychology book, it has much to say about the soul and the inner life of a human being. And when the Bible speaks about those subjects, it is profound. Galatians 5:16-26 is one of those passages! The BIG question Paul has to answer is this: “Without law, how do we…

Galatians 5:7-15

We are systematically making our way through Galatians 5 and will look at nine verses tomorrow: verses 7-15. The argument for the need for the church to have rules to govern behavior is that if people are told they are free, they will just indulge sin!  “Pastor, people need rules and guilt and pressure or they…

Galatians 5:1-10

Galatians chapter five represents a transition from the first four chapters that were highly persuasive and theological regarding our relationship to God the Father. In chapter 5, Paul shows the Galatians what freedom really looks like and how truly free people really live by the Spirit and Love — not by law.  In the discussion…

Galatians 4:21-31

We will finish chapter 4 of Galatians in today’s message, and find yet another angle Paul takes in his attempt to rescue the people who are being coerced back into a rules-based, immature, slave-type relationship with God!  His last approach is an “allegorical” look at a well known Old Testament account from Genesis. “But Pastor,…

Galatians 4:12-20

Let’s be honest.  There are times when we read the Bible and we say, “I wish I had a little more information!”  Well, tomorrow’s study in Galatians 4:12-20 may just be one of those times! As Paul does, he has been “bringing the heat” and communicating his concern for the future of the people in…

Galatians 4:1-11

I hope we can begin to regain some of that momentum as we roll back into Galatians, picking up where we left off at the beginning of chapter 4! It’s been a few weeks so we’ll catch up a bit with a brief review at the start! For now, the question I want you to think…

Galatians 3:19-28

This week we pick back up in Paul’s letter to the churches of Galatia.  We will be back finishing up the bulk of chapter three, and I think you will be encouraged and enlightened by it! We have spent a lot of time discussing “the law“—those regulations and rituals and stipulations that govern behavior and…

Communion Sunday – 1 John 4

This week we are stepping out of Galatians and into the book of 1 John for communion Sunday. The whole book is phenomenally honest about the difference between what we say and what we really do. Here is what I do know:  life is hard and this world is not our home. There are global fears…

Galatians 3:10-18

Feedback from the past several weeks suggests that many are being impacted by the truths of Galatians and many are sensing the Lord working through this study, and specifically on the topic of the grace of God. We will continue to wrap our heads around law, grace, and the experience of Abraham. We can study…

Galatians 3:1-9

This week we open our Bibles to Galatians 3 and read along as Paul continues to battle against a gospel that claims blessing from God is a reward for good behavior. After giving them the reason for his letter in the first chapter, Paul has spent a good deal of ink describing his own personal experience…
