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. Did following the Law ever do anything compared to what trusting in Jesus did? Do they think they can do a better […]
We are justified, we are qualified, we are welcomed before God not by any work of our own doing. No matter how kind, and selfless and proper and “good” someone else’s life looks to us, or how ugly, abusive, violent or horrific our life might be — if anyone stands before God, they stand without […]
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?

The gospel, or the good news of who Jesus is and what He has done for us, is only powerful when it is heard and believed in it’s proper form. It isn’t like a Tylenol, where half a pill might work half as well. Half a gospel doesn’t half-save, it doesn’t work at all; and […]
What is worship? Simple question. Many answers. This week we consider worship from both a secular and biblical point of view to discover how Christians are meant to worship and why it’s a right response to God.
