Pastor: Rev. Keith A. Mosebrook
Paul's letter to the Galatians has been called "The Cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation" for it was out of his careful study of this book, that Martin Luther re-discovered God's plan of salvation by God's grace through faith plus nothing. The book of Galatians has also been called "The Magna Carta of Spiritual Liberty" or the Christian's "Declaration of Independence". For it rightly maintains that only through the grace of God in Jesus Christ is a person enabled to escape the curse of his sin and of the law, and to live a new life, not in bondage nor in license, but in a genuine freedom of mind and spirit through the power of God. This book exposes the most popular substitute for spiritual living that we have in our churches today-- Legalism! In Galatians, Paul carefully lays out what it means to be spiritual! He shows how wrong it is for us to distill the Christian life to a list of rules and regulations, and how right we can be if only we submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. For when the Holy Spirit takes over, there is liberty, not bondage, cooperation, not competition, glory given to God and not praise to man. We have been set free in Jesus Christ! We must therefore "Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free" (Galatians 5:1). "Living in Freedom"
Throughout the spring months and extending through, we will be contining our study in the book of Galatians and how we can live in the freedom that is ours in Christ. Hope you can join us Sunday mornings for this exciting study in God's Word. If you cannot, the messages are available on-line for your listening enrichment. Just click on the "Sermon" tab to access the MP3 recordings.
