In our last podcast (last because we had to skip it) we look at Paul’s declaration that simply because we can doesn’t give us the freedom TO. That while sin is in our lives and Christ saves us that doesn’t mean we can just live into the freedom to sin. You and I, by the grace of God, have the Holy Spirit living and dwelling and working in us – and HIS work doesn’t play nicely with the fleshly work!

We’ve come to the end of our time in Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia and he closes it out by reiterating all that he has previously written passionately about. And as he rehashes all that he said, as he speaks to each group of people that are in the church, once more he asks: whom are you seeking the approval of? It’s a valuable question then and a valuable question today. Continue reading Galatians 6:7-18 Seeking the Approval of God
In this podcast Paul shifts his focus, once more, to address the Judaizers AS WELL AS the Galatian brothers and sisters. No longer is he soft and “motherly” (as he just was) but now he goes back to addressing the lies the Judaizers were pushing… and he does it by breaking down their beliefs once more. Continue reading Galatians 4:21-5:12 Waiting for the Promise
In this Podcast we continue working through Paul’s letter to the Galatians as he switches from his “angry voice” to his motherly compassionate voice. Paul has spent time with these people, knows these people, and he desperately wants them to remember the God he knows – and the God he shared. And ultimately he wants THEM to know that THEY are known by God. Continue reading Galatians 4:8-20 Being Known
We continue in our podcast series of Galatians as we look at the opening 22 verses of chapter 3. It’s a chapter that has us climbing up some mountains as we seek to find the true summit: Jesus Christ. Continue reading Galatians 3:1-22 Jesus: The Answer
What does it mean to be justified before the eyes of God? Does it mean that I can and cannot do things? Does it mean that I should and should not do things? Does it mean that each day i do _________ so that God looks at me with loving kindness and goodness? Or does it mean something else? In today’s podcast we continue to look at Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia and the struggle they had with the gospel message of “Jesus alone” that had been warped into “Jesus and _____.” Continue reading Galatians 2 – A Right Relationship with God
We are in a new series, one that will take us about 8 podcasts to work through, where we look into the book of Galatians. A book that is clearly written by an angry Paul to a church that had become a “Jesus and” church it’s still a book that is relevant today. Continue reading Galatians 1 – The Truth of the Gospel
