Liberty to Love



The apostle Paul has concluded his defense of the gospel. Christ has set us free from the regulations of the Law from Sinai. He does not want the Galatian believers putting themselves under bondage to those laws at the expense of grace. Yet he also does not want them using their liberty to indulge sinful desires either. Rather, this liberty is given so that we may be like Christ and love others. Love fulfills the law of Christ.

Inherit with Christ



The gospel is for all people: Jews and Gentiles of all ethnicities, all economic classes, both men and women. We are all equally sinners, and we are equally adopted into the family of God through Christ, receiving an equal salvation. The fullness of time has come, God sent forth His Son that we might receive the adoption into the family of God.  And as adopted “sons” we receive the inheritance in Christ!

Blessed with Christ



How good is good enough for whom? If the expectation is perfection to the ponderous law of God, then we all fall short. But the LORD has declared some to be in right-standing with Him. But how? Belief and disobedience. Blessing and curses. The weighty dilemma is resolved by Christ on the cross.

Crucified with Christ



Paul says, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Surrender and Rescue



The Apostle Paul. Not everyone called him by that title, nor believe that he should have that title. And they also didn’t think he knew the gospel. So Paul writes this letter to churches he had just planted, not just to promote himself, but to verify the truth of Jesus Christ and the good news that he taught as the only way to God. There is no other way to heaven than through Jesus Christ, and Paul was chosen to bear that message.

Christmas story told by Apostle Paul



The Apostle Paul knew the Christmas story (after all, his bff was Luke who tells us much of the Christmas story).  But in his letter to the Galatian believers, Paul was more concerned with the significance of the Incarnation than the rest of the characters in the nativity set.
