Galatians pt8


Staying free

Scriptures:Romans14:1-4, 1Cor 6:1-4, Galatians 6:7-18

Galatians 6:1-5

1. Brothers and Sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also maybe be tempted.2. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3. If anyone thinks this they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.4.Each one should test their own actions.Them they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else. 5. For each one should carry their own load.

Faithfulness is measured by what you do with what you have been given. It is not measured by what you do or have received in comparison to someone else.

” A faithful Christian cares little what people think of him,as long as this conscience approves of him.The approval of his own conscience is the best praise a Christian can have- to know we have done what the Father has asked of us. -Martin Luther.

1.Test yourself against yourself.

2. Compare not yourself against others.

3. Carry your load as assigned by God.

“For everybody to covet praise is foolish because the praise of men will be no help you in the hour of death. Before the judgement seat of Christ everybody will have to hear his own burden. As it is praise of men stops when we die. Before the eternal judge it is not praise that counts but your own conscience.”- Martin Luther.

Galatians pt 7


Life in the Spirit

Scriptures 1John1:9;Romans 6:1; James1:14-15;Galatians 5:13-25, 6:7 1 Corinthians 3:1-3

1. Walking by the Spirit will distract you from other desires.

2. Walking the Spirit will create a conflict in your mind and heart.

3. Walking by the Spirit is like planting seeds in the ground in which fruit will bear.

“Trouble springs from idleness.” Benjamin Franklin.

When you plant a seed you harvest fruit with thousands of seeds.

Now What? God is offering you freedom from the sinful flesh by putting your faith in his Son Jesus Christ.

1Cor 10:23-24 “I have the right to do anything ,” you say- but not everything is beneficial .”I have the right to do anything “- but not everything is constructive. 24. No one should seek their own when we confess them.

And when we fail to live by the Spirit, Jesus Christ is faithful and just to forgive us when we confess them.

Galatians Pt6


Stand Free

Galatians 4:21-24,4:31,5:1

Slaves to what? We can become slaves to our sin. Also we can become slaves to works/law. As we become slaves to works and law we put ourselves underneath bondage because we have added to the plan of salvation. Which will lead us to a performance based relationship.

2 Areas of Slavery

1.Slaves to Sin.

2.Slaves Works/Law

John8:34, Romans6:14, Romans6:12, Galatians 5:2-4, Romans7:7,1Cor10:23, 1Cor 6:12

Big Idea

This week Pastor Brad shared about the difference between being a slave to sin and a slave to works. In Galatians 5:1 Paul writes,” For freedom Christ has set us free, stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke if slavery.” There are also two areas we find ourselves burdened by slavery.

1. Slave to sin(Illustrated by Hagar)

2.Slave to works and law.(Illustrated by Sarah)

Throughout Christian history Christians have struggled with adding requirements to our salvation some were abused if church leadership while others were done with good intentions. However,Paul clearly laid out that salvation is a gift and that there was nothing we could do to earn it.

Galatians Pt4


Faith or Works.

Galatians 3:1-2 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing law, or by believing what you heard?

Did you receive the spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?

Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

Does God give you his spirit and work miracles among you by the works , or by your believing what you heard.

Faith

Galatians 3:9 So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

Works

Galatians 3:10 All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of theLaw.”
