Bible Text: Luke 12:13–21
In this sermon, we see Jesus passionately teach his church that there is more to life than what we see, and an opportunity to have what we never even thought was possible. We are distracted by so many things in life, yet through it all, Jesus says for true abundance and lasting pleasure only one thing is necessary – and here he points out what that is.
Bible Text: Galatians 6:7–10
This is the last sermon in our series in Galatians where the Apostle Paul reminds this church of one of life’s most profound truths – you reap what you sow – and it is both a powerful deterrent and an incredible encouragement to the Christian. God reminds us here that Jesus has set us free to make a choice, and now, what we do matters. Paul wraps this letter up with a reminder to choose life by making a daily decision to follow Jesus.
Bible Text: Galatians 5:13–25
When we give our lives to Jesus he fills us with his Spirit. This means we have a desire to live for him now, but it also marks the start of an internal war that won’t end this side of heaven. In this sermon we look at the conflict that every Christian feels, and the way to go about the fight to make sure we win.
Bible Text: Galatians 4:1-20
In this amazing passage of the Bible the Apostle Paul reminds this church of who they are as children of God. This privilege also comes with a warning not to slip back into slavery – trying to earn God’s approval by what they do, instead of trusting in what Jesus has done. It’s a great reminder of who we are, and what our future holds if we hold fast to Jesus.
Bible Text: Galatians 3:19–29
God’s law is a very intimidating thing. It reveals who we are, it reveals who God is, and it has the potential to crush us or save us, depending on how we understand its purpose for our lives. It is a CRITICAL that we get this right, and in this passage, the Apostle Paul tells us exactly what the purpose of God’s law is, and what it has to do with our Saviour Jesus.
