This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

 

In Galatians 5:7-12, Paul continues his argument against legalism (the teaching of the Judaizers). In this passage, he uses the phrase “the offense of the cross.” What does that mean? Why is it important to understand?

To prepare, read  Galatians 5:1-12.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

Paul has just told us “we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.” (Galatians 4:31). He says that we are free from the bondage of religious rites and rituals.

In chapter 5, he begins to explain what he means by “freedom”.

To prepare, read  Galatians 5:1-12.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

In Galatians 4:21-21, Paul uses a story from the Old Testament to continue his theological defense of grace versus law. He actually preaches a mini-sermon in the midst of this letter to the Galatians.

Last week we looked at the story in Genesis. This week, we’ll see what Paul has to say about it. And it is amazing.

To prepare, read  Galatians 4:21-31.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

First of all, I hope that everyone was safe during hurricane Dorian. I am grateful that the storm wasn’t that bad in Virginia Beach.

This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

We’ve been talking about the “weird ways of God”. Now we will talk about the weird ways of men.

Paul uses a story from the Old Testament to continue his theological defense of grace versus law. He actually preaches a mini-sermon in the midst of this letter to the Galatians. We will look at what he says, but also, explore the original text to which he is referring. It is the story of Hagar and Sarah– and to understand Paul’s point, we need to be familiar with that story.

 

To prepare, read  Galatians 4:21-31, Genesis 16:1-15, and Genesis 21:1-21.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

The Weird Ways of God 2

September 1, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Galatians

Message: The Weird Ways of God 2

Why does God seem to work in weird ways– or, at least, weird ways from our perspective.

Paul’s helps us understand this question in 1 Corinthians 1:18-31.

This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

Last week we talked about The Weird Ways of God. We will continue exploring that idea again this week.

During his ministry, Paul learned a lot of lessons. Perhaps the greatest was that he learned to trust God. As wonderful as that sounds, we must confess that it is difficult.

Why? Because we usually learn this lesson best when we face challenges in our lives. And frankly, we don’t like those much. But that is the road we must take to learn to trust.

To prepare, read  Isaiah 55:6-9, 1 Corinthians 1:18-31, and 2 Corinthians 12:7-10.

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
