A Study of Galatians

Series start date: September 8th, 2013

Paul wrote, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1) These powerful words represent the essence of Paul's letter to the Galatian churches. Over the next eight weeks we will explore this letter and the message of freedom contained therein.

    October 27th, 2013

    In the conclusion of this series in Galatians, Paul makes his final plea against those who are insistent on teaching circumcision. Paul's final appeal takes us to the core of the gospel message - the Cross of Christ. It is the Cross that makes us new creatures, not circumcision (or any other ceremony).

    Freedom to Bear vs. Freedom to Bolt

    October 20th, 2013

    In all of Paul?s letters, Paul commits time and space to speak to the relationship Christians have with one another. In Galatians, he urges the disciples to use their freedom to deal with the hardships of others. Freedom in Christ is not freedom to disregard brothers and sisters. It is all the more the reason to engage and help carry loads that were never meant for one person to bear.
    Primary text(s): Galatians 6:1-10

    Being heirs of God is the ultimate declaration of freedom. By comparing Old Testament figures Sarah and Hagar, Paul again compels the Galatians to choose freedom over bondage.

    Law & Convenience vs. Grace & Promise

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    September 29th, 2013

    To many, this dichotomy is the core message of Paul's letter. He marvels that the Galatians have seemingly made preference to the Law (Rules and Regulations) over God's extravagant Grace. Paul makes a compelling case and puts the recipients of this letter in the position to make the better choice.

    Justification vs. Juxtaposition

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    September 22nd, 2013

    The Galatians church was inundated with teaching that tried to syncretize Christianity with Judaism. As such, the Christians believed that their salvation would be the result of their performance of rituals and rules and not God?s work of Justification. Paul will make the strong case using the story of Abraham that salvation is a matter of Justification in Christ.

    Inclusion vs. Exclusion

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    September 15th, 2013

    God's roadmap for mankind includes everyone even those who the Jews saw as unfit for God's love. Paul explains that his calling was from God to minister to the Gentiles and even opposed one the earliest and most prominent leaders of the early church, the apostle Peter. It also sets the stage for Paul's discussion of the yoke that Jews desired to place on Gentile believers.
