Galatians – Part 6

Don’t Give Up – Don’t Quit! (Galatians 6:7-9 NIV) Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (8) Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (9) Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. HELP, I’M TIRED! The comparison trap…

Galatians – Part 5

We Are Free! (Galatians 5:1-4 NIV)  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  (2)  Mark my words!

Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. …

Galatians – Part 2

Living the Crucified Life (Galatians 2:11-13 MSG) Later, when Peter came to Antioch, I had a face-to-face confrontation with him because he was clearly out of line. Here’s the situation. Earlier, before certain persons had come from James, Peter regularly ate with the non-Jews. But when that conservative group came from Jerusalem, he cautiously pulled back and put as much distance as he could manage between himself and his non-Jewish friends. That’s how fearful he was of the conservative Jewish…

GALATIANS – Part 1 Two Gospels (Galatians 1:1-5 NIV)  Paul, an apostle–sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead– and all the brothers and sisters with me, To the churches in Galatia: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God…
