Galatians 1:1-5 “To the Churches of Galatia”

Galatians 1:1-5 "To the Churches of Galatia"

Galatians is considered one of the most important letters of all of Paul’s letters. While each letter (or book) is significant and essential for the complete revelation of God, not each book is equal in weightiness. We know this from talking to our missionaries who translate scripture. Some books have more essential elements to them […]

Galatians 1:1-5 “The Posture of an Apostle and the Glory of God.”

Galatians 1:1-5 "The Posture of an Apostle and the Glory of God."

Vs 1. “Paul an apostle, not from man or through man but through Jesus Christ.”  Apostles were mainly referred to as the eleven who were with Jesus and saw him in his earthly ministry.  Paul calls himself an apostle as well but as one “untimely born” or the “least of all the apostles.”  James, the […]

Galatians 1:6-10 “No Other Gospel”

Galatians 1:6-10 "No Other Gospel"

Galatians 1:6-10 So, the title of this sermon is called “no other gospel: a vision for East Balsam.”  Some of you might be wondering, “what is the point of having a vision? Or what’s the big deal about having a vision.  We have the Bible. We have each other. We should be okay without some […]

Galatians 1:11-17 “Not Man’s Gospel”

Galatians 1:11-17 "Not Man's Gospel"

I want to start this morning by saying this, We are not God. Have you ever thought about that? We need to differentiate ourselves and God. You and God do not exist as a unit of existence, as though you and Him are indistinguishable. God exists apart from you but you do not exist apart […]

Galatians 1:18-24 “And They Glorified God Because of Me.”

Galatians 1:18-24 "And They Glorified God Because of Me."

Humans being crave ownership. We love to have stuff.  I remember Christmas time when there were gifts under the tree. Christmas eve came and I would open those presents and be surrounded by all kinds of stuff.  It felt good for awhile, but then I would start playing with stuff or putting on a t-shirt […]

Galatians 2:1-10 “They Added Nothing To Me”

So Paul is at it again…. This time he is going to jump forward 14 years to continue his distancing from the apostles and any notion that he got his gospel from man. Let’s pick up at verse 1 and 2…… So here Paul decides to go up to Jerusalem along with his ministry partners, […]

Galatians 2:11-15 “Confrontation and the Hope of the Gospel”

Galatians 2:11-15 "Confrontation and the Hope of the Gospel"

Water like the scriptures, has many purposes. Water is both meant to purify and cleanse as well hydrate and invigorate. So when it rains, the water will clean a dirty car or road in way that washes away dirt or grime. Water also is good for drinking right? It hydrates and quenches thirst. So after […]

Galatians 2:15-21 “Sinners, Justified by Faith”

Galatians 2:15-21 "Sinners, Justified by Faith"

The title of this sermon is “sinners, justified by faith.” With this title, I am making two assumptions: One is that all of us are sinners, so we all need to hear this message. And the other is that I have discovered (or rather the scriptures have revealed) a way to avoid or escape judgment […]

Galatians 3:1-6 “Gospel Fuel: hearing, faith, Spirit”

Galatians 3:1-6 "Gospel Fuel: hearing, faith, Spirit"

At this point in Galatians, the gloves are off. Paul has made his argument for his apostleship. He has proven that he is not a man pleaser and that nothing and no one should stand in the way of the gospel.  He has taken on Peter. He has taken on those of the circumcision party.  […]

Galatians 3:7-14 “Christ, Our Substitute”

Galatians 3:7-14 "Christ, Our Substitute"

Galatians 3:7-14 “Christ, our substitute” Before I pray I want to make an acknowledgement regarding today’s message. I am well aware that some of you may not like the title of this sermon.  Maybe you don’t want a substitute.  Most people don’t want to be taken out of the game so to speak, or to […]
