Sermons

One True Word

Galatians 1:11-24 What can we focus on that will help us walk in unity and love, and actually contend for the truth and share the Scriptures? What is it that we can pay attention to that will help keep us from foolish, fleshy, personality-driven, over-spiritualized, painful moments in the church? We can focus on THIS gospel. We can sit humbly under God’s Words alone, accepting them as perfect, without error, and unlike anything that humans might come up with.

Willing to Get Punched?

Galatians 1:1-10 The gospel is God’s message. It’s God’s message of grace – that as a gift, believed by faith, we have the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus credited to our account. And all the deepest issues in life – acceptance before God and His people, significance, peace, security, provision, a future – it’s all been utterly, fully, and completely resolved by the work of Jesus. It’s all a gift. It’s all grace.
