Gal 5:1-15: Common Errors and How to Avoid Them Print E-mail

Repetition of truth is necessary in life due to the costliness of errors.  There were certain truths that our parents taught us over and over again.  If we are honest, at some point we probably thought, ‘I know this already, tell me something new.  Why are you always telling me the same thing?’  For example, if I say to you, ‘Look both ways,’ how would you finish the sentence?  Of course you would say, ‘before you cross the street.’  We have all heard that statement hundreds of times in our lives.  So, why is it so important to continually repeat that truth?  Because it only takes forgetting it one time to show how devastating it can be to not remember.  The costliness of making such an error is so great that we must keep that truth before us.

Gal. 4:21-31: Learning to Listen to the Law Print E-mail

One of the difficulties we face in studying the New Testament is dealing with how the writers interpret the Old Testament.  In other words, we have to wrestle with the question: can I interpret the Old Testament in the same way that Matthew and Paul do?  At times it seems as if they did not learn how to interpret the Old Testament in the same way that I was taught at school.

The Weight and Privelege of Ministry (Ordination Service) Print E-mail

Our church celebrated the ordination of our youth pastor to the ministry on Wednesday evening, May 17, 2006.  The service opened with prayer and Martin Luther's stirring hymn, A Mighty Fortress, extolling the unstoppable power of even one little word from the mouth of our sovereign God.  The hymn is one of Michael's favorites.

Brother William preached from Acts 20:17-38 (see sermon manuscript below), giving Michael a solemn reminder of the weighty responsibilites of the gospel ministry.  A manuscript of that message can be found below.  Anyone thinking about entering the ministry would do well to read and prayerfully consider the charge given to Michael.

Gal. 4:8-20: Caring for Others in the Church Print E-mail

What would you do if someone you were close to began to stray from the truth?  Let’s say that they professed to be a believer, that they were even a member of our Church, and had seemingly been a faithful follower of Christ.  Yet, for whatever reason, they were now abandoning what they knew to be true and following after lies.  How would you respond to this person?  How would you care for them?

Gal. 4:1-7: God's Work in Sending Christ Print E-mail

When looking at the life of Abraham a couple of months ago from the book of Genesis, we noted that there are often identifiable patterns in the Bible.  In Abraham’s life, we looked at the pattern of God’s relationship with man, namely that God will call a man and the man will respond with obedience and that God will provide for a man and the man will respond with trust and thanksgiving.  This pattern is similar throughout the pages of the Bible.

Gal. 3:15-29: Standing on the Promise Print E-mail

In the book of Galatians, Paul paints us a glorious picture of our justification.  Beginning at (and even before) he is arguing that a person is justified by faith in Christ.  As we begin this morning, we should revisit how he has argued this up to this point in chapter 3.  Let me offer a summary.
