Its in St Paul’s letter to the Galatians that he talks about reaping what you sow. A familiar text. What may be less familiar is the connection St Paul makes between that sowing and serving.
Everywhere you look there is a terrific need for reconciliation. Why is this need there and what is the solution?
Pastor Larry continues his series in St Paul’s letter to the Galatians. And just what purpose does the Law serve? If we aren’t made right with God by keeping the Law, why is it there or why is it something for us to consider?
Now, tell me again: Why did Jesus have to die? This is a good, valid question that is asked my many people. The answer, as Pastor Larry explains in this sermon, is aligned with all that is written in the Old Testament about “God’s economy”.
Do I have “zeal” for the Gospel? If not, it just may be that I don’t fully appreciate just how special, just how precious a thing the Gospel of Jesus really is.
Gospel Unity? Well, Pastor Larry explains why there is unity in the gospel message. Unity between Jews and non-Jews. Unity between religious and irreligious people.
St Paul sets forth and defends his Apostolic authority in this passage. He and the other apostles did not mutually negotiate what the gospel was. Rather as they compared was each was preaching, they saw that their messages were consistent or identical: One Gospel for all people.
Pastor Larry continues in his Galatians series. In chapter 2, the Apostle Paul tells the Galatian believers how he went to Jerusalem to defend and confirm the true gospel; the gospel of free grace. That men- both Jews and gentiles -are accepted by God only as they express faith in the perfect life that Jesus lived.
