Galatians 4:12-20 “A Pastor’s Anguish”

Galatians 4:12-20 "A Pastor's Anguish"

Galatians 4:12-20 “A Pastors Anguish” Far from being a stoic emotionless pastor, Paul demonstrates ultra human traits in his letters. He was not the perfect picture of calm and collect. He was not the perfect picture of a professional minister. He was not professional at all. He was passionate for his churches and he was […]

Galatians 4:21-31 “Children of Promise”

Galatians 4:21-31 "Children of Promise"

Matthew 27:32-50 “A Savior for Sinners.”

Matthew 27:32-50 "A Savior for Sinners."

Matthew 27:32-50 Not a happy story The story of the crucifixion is not a happy story.  It’s not attractive. It’s not acceptable in popular culture. We like pretty things, nice things, attractive things.  A man dying a horrible and excruciating death is not going to be a point of interest for most people. Crucifixion was […]

Matthew 28:1-10 “The Greatest Day in History”

Matthew 28:1-10 "The Greatest Day in History"

The greatest day ever The resurrection of Christ is the greatest day in human history. No other events in history can compare to it.  The winning of the World Series, the winning of the Super bowl or an NBA championship, the election of a president, the winning of a war, the day you land a […]

Galatians 6:1-5 A flyover view So just to do a quick flyover of this text, Paul is instructing this church of what to do if one of its members is caught in a sin. He has explained that salvation is a free gift of God and that forgiveness is offered to sinners without cost. But […]

Galatians 6:6-10 “The Justice and Mercy of God”

Galatians 6:6-10 "The Justice and Mercy of God"

Galatians 6:6-10 “The justice and mercy of God” The impulse for works based righteousness I want to begin this morning by acknowledging the human impulse to return to works-based righteousness.  The human heart is always vying for control.  We are always pushing toward being the center of the universe. At least, I always am. And […]
