Galatians 2:20

April 1, 2018 • Pastor Phil Burggraff • Resurrected: Are you really living?

Theme: Resurrected: Are you really living? Passage: Galatians 2:20 How to truly live: 1. Be crucified with Christ. a. Why? i. Who we are does not matter (2:15) ii. What we do does not matter (2:16a) iii. Apart from Christ, we fall short no matter how much we do (17–18). b. How? i. Recognize what Christ accomplished (19a). ii. Trust what Christ accomplished (16b). 2. Allow Christ to be first in your life. a. You no longer live. b. Christ lives in you. 3. Continue to approach life by trusting and modeling Christ. a. You still have to live life. b. Follow Christ’s example by doing what he did. Main Idea: We can live resurrected life now because of what Jesus has done for us and is doing in us. Application Questions: • Look back at Galatians 1 and 2 up to this point in the letter. How does what Paul says here in 2:19–20 fit into this context? • How does the world define and describe really living? • Why do we as humans struggle so much with trying to work for our salvation or right standing with God? What are the problems with this? • How should Christ living in you affect the decisions and choices that you make? • In what ways can we model Christ’s example found at the end of v. 20?

Series: Glory + Grace :: Transformed Water, Worship, and Mission • February 23, 2020 • Pastor Phil Burggraff

Theme: Transformed Water, Worship, and Mission Passage: John 4:1–42 Notice what his encounter with a Samaritan woman teaches us about Jesus: 1. Jesus provides water that eternally satisfies (7–14). 2. Jesus sees and knows our predicament (15–18). 3. Jesus represents the place in which true worship occurs (19–26). 4. Jesus calls his followers to see the mission field God has prepared for them (27–38). 5. Jesus truly is the Savior of the world (39–42). Sermonic Theme: Those transformed by glory and grace focus their worship on God’s work through his Son by carrying out his mission of pointing any and all people to Jesus. Application Questions: • What stood out to you about Jesus from this story? How can you apply what you see of Jesus into your own life? • What does Jesus’s statement about worship in vv. 19–24 teach us worship isn’t and is? How might this affect your own worship or involvement in corporate worship? • Like the disciples (vv. 27–34), how are you blind at times to what is spiritually going on? In what ways does this passage convict you about your involvement in God’s mission? • From this passage, what encourages you to carry out the mission of pointing people to Jesus?
