Daniel 8:1-27

I am not sure if I feel more like a sports commentator or a Bible preacher! Why? Daniel has another vivid and descriptive vision. This time it’s the Bucks against the Rams with a surprise ending! This chapter, like Daniel chapter 7, is full of action. The ram seems unstoppable, but wait—out of nowhere comes…

Galatians 6:11-18

We are now bringing to conclusion our study in the Book of Galatians as we get a grip on Paul’s closing remarks.  We have followed his argument and appeal to the young Christians in the region of Galatia— stand firmly in the freedom from religious performance that Christ brought, and walk in the Spirit!  That’s a basic…

Galatians 6:1-10

Have you spent too much time watching the news? Are Facebook posts driving you mad?  Is politics polluting your joy?  What’s the answer?  Worship! The last chapter of Galatians is super practical and answers some important questions about Godly communities and healthy families!  Grace and law couldn’t produce more different community dynamics! Paul explains that healthy,…

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…
