Gal. 5:7-13a “Run Free”

Gal. 5:7-13a "Run Free"

Galatians 5:7-13 God has freed us from the Law and sin to run in freedom before Him. He delights to watch us run—it’s what we were made for. “Running” is a metaphor, of course, for living out our Christian life. We are to live in His grace. We must not let others cut in and […]

Gal. 5:1-6 “Freedom by Faith Alone”

Gal. 5:1-6 "Freedom by Faith Alone"

Gal. 4:8-20 “True Ministry”

Gal. 4:8-20 "True Ministry"

Galatians 4:8-20. True ministry is hard work, and it must be based on the gospel, not friendships.  At times the gospel may even separate us from those who once were close to us. But it would only be un-loving to compromise. Like Paul, we want to love others by working to help them find freedom […]

Gal. 4:1-7 “Let God Adopt You”

Gal. 4:1-7 "Let God Adopt You"

Galatians 4:1-7 What a sweet bond of Father to child we have with God. None of our earthly fathers were perfect. And yours may have failed you terribly. But your heavenly Father is perfect. He loves you so much. He chose to adopt you. He paid the price. Now He wants you to be so […]

Gal. 3:23-29 “Do You Belong to Christ?”

Gal. 3:23-29 "Do You Belong to Christ?"

Galatians 3:23-29 This trusting is not just believing about Christ, but actually belonging to Him. “And if you are Christ’s”—are you? Do you belong to Christ by faith? Are you immersed into Him? Have you put Him on like a garment, covering you? Have you entrusted your life into Him? If so, then you are […]

Gal. 3:15-22 “God Never Breaks His Promises”

Gal. 3:15-22 "God Never Breaks His Promises"

Galatians 3:15-22 The Law was given to show people that we don’t deserve to be part of the promised blessings. We all fall short of God’s righteous commands.  The promise is that those who have faith like Abraham will be included in the blessings promised to Abraham and his Offspring (3:7).  A promise isn’t something […]

Gal. 3:10-14 “Radical Redemption”

Gal. 3:10-14 "Radical Redemption"

Galatians 3:10-14 To “redeem” here means to pay the price for something. In Bible times it could refer to the price paid for a slave’s freedom. The gospel is so radical because of the two little words in v. 13– “for us”. Jesus paid our price with His life. Jesus was the price. “For us.”

Gal. 3:7-9 “Father Abraham Had Many Sons”

Gal. 3:7-9 "Father Abraham Had Many Sons"

Galatians 3:7-9 If you want to be blessed by God like Abraham was, and if you want to share in the sure promises God promised for Abraham’s descendants, then you too must be a person “of faith.”

Gal. 3:1-6 “Remember How You Got Saved”

Gal. 3:1-6 "Remember How You Got Saved"

Galatians 3:1-6 When you heard this message, of Jesus, the Son of God dying on a cross for your sins, and risen and alive forever, you believed! Something happened in your heart, and you believed! You turned from your own efforts at good works, and you believed in what God has done through Christ. You […]
