Free At Last ( A Study of Galatians)

Free At Last ( A Study of Galatians)

In this series, we are going to take a deep dive into the book of Galatians, a letter written by Paul to the Christians in Galatia. More than any other person, Paul shifted the focus of Christianity from the proclamation of Jesus to the proclamation about Jesus. He singlehandedly transformed Christianity from an exclusively Jewish faith to a faith that included both Jews and Gentiles. He made Christianity open to everyone, everywhere, at every time.

As we begin to study the book of Galatians, we will see that the theme of this book is “Free at Last!” Paul began his ministry to churches emphasizing the freedom Jesus Christ brings from sin, from the fear of death, and from trying to be good enough for God. No other book in the Bible explains why Christianity is completely, uniquely, and absolutely different from every other religious faith. Jesus offers freedom that no one else can, and that’s the freedom Paul explains in Galatians.

  • The Only Way To Live - October 20, 2019

    There is a phenomenal quote from the movie “Braveheart” that says, “Every man dies, but not every man truly lives.” There is so much truth in this statement​ because the vast majority of people who live on this earth will live and die in slavery and bondage – in bondage to lust, pornography, jeal...

    The church was meant to be centered around the message that focused on three words: God, grace, and Gospel.

  • Losing Your Religion - November 3, 2019

    Every religion is basically trying to answer the same two questions: 1) How do you relate to God?, and 2) How can you have a relationship with God? Not only do all religions ask the same two questions, but they all basically give the same answer – how you live before you die determines where you ...

  • The Only Thing That Counts - November 10, 2019

    Whether we think it’s fair or not, there is an increasing antipathy, apathy, and antagonism toward the church and modern Christianity unlike anything we’ve ever seen in our nation’s history.

    The book of Galatians was written to show how we are not only free from having to keep rules and regulations to be right to God, but we are also free to love others who either don’t know God and need to come to God, or they have come to God but have fallen away. How do we treat people who are bro...

  • Don't Waste Your Life - November 24, 2019

    If I could give one piece of advice to every human being that is born as they begin their life and I knew they would take it, it would be in four words – “don’t waste your life.” It’s not that there is anything wrong with retirement or having nice things and enjoying life. The point is we shouldn...
