Message: “Part 3” from Chris May

Chris May - May 21, 2017

Part 3

Galatians

In 'Part 3' of our series here, we learn that Jesus came to take our burdens. The burdens of constant shame and judgement from the law. The burdens and demands of legalism. The constraints of even church culture at times. The Gospel brings one from death to new life.

Pastor Chris expounds these important words that are often glossed over by readers of this letter. There is a True Gospel, just as there are many false ones. The Gospel of Jesus is about grace and love. The false gospel of the Galatians and so many others in our own day is about restriction and burden.

Scripture References: Galatians 2:1-10

From Series: "Galatians"

Real Life is starting in a multi-week series through the book of Galatians, Paul's great Epistle (pastoral letter) to the churches near and around Galatia. Paul's primary concern is bring the church back to an understanding that the Gospel not only brings people to salvation, but the Gospel is the very essence of Christianity everyday for every Christian. You don't graduate from the Gospel. This particular church was very quick to add things to the Gospel. Such as new and old rules that would have caused the church to find reconciliation with God through their good doing instead of Christ's (Jesus') atoning work on our behalf. They were flipping the need to good deeds and works with their need to be changed and saved by the Gospel. This Epistle serves as a reminder, even to the modern church, that Jesus is enough. The Gospel is good news yesterday, today, and for the rest of life here on earth.
