The Apostle Paul has done a convincing job of arguing for the superiority of faith in Jesus over our human works of the Law or religion. his argument is so convincing, in fact, that it leaves an obvious question. What then was the purpose of the Law? If it could not make us righteous, why did God give […]
God made a promise to Abraham, over 600 years before the Law. It is on that promise that Abraham believed, and was made right before God. As we continue in the letter to the Galatians the Apostle Paul shows them (and us) that the promise of God is superior in every way to our own […]
There are two common reasons people take lightly, or fail to recognize the glory of what Jesus did for us on the cross. They do not comprehend just how holy God is on one hand, or just how sinful we are on the other. If God is not really holy and we are not really sinful, then Jesus did […]
We continue our series in Paul’s letter to the Galatians in chapter 3. In a series of rhetorical questions, Paul challenges his friends to remember how they received their new life in Jesus.

In Galatians chapter 2, the apostle Peter get’s called out by Paul for where he has chosen to eat his dinner. What’s the big deal here? Why is Paul escalating Peter’s seating arrangements into a public argument? Because the gospel matters in everything. If we really share the same gospel, then we share in everything […]
or·tho·dox·y noun 1. authorized or accepted doctrine and practice. Orthodoxy sounds like a problem for pastors or professors, why should it affect my everyday life? As we continue in Paul’s letter to the Galatians, he begins to unpack for us why getting the gospel right is of vital importance, not just for what we believe in our minds, […]
