No Other Gospel

Galatians

The Offense of the Cross

October 10, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 5:1–15

The cross is offensive. You will be tempted to make it less offensive. Don’t — or you will empty it of its power.

Freed For ... ?

October 3, 2021 • Gerry Breshears • Galatians 5:1–15

In contrast to much of our day and age, biblical Freedom is not living life without limits, always able to do whatever we want. Freedom is the ability to live within the commitment of love.

We Are Children of Promise

September 26, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 4:21—5:1

To hammer home his plea for us to live in the freedom Christ has provided for us, Paul uses some familiar Old Testament names to make an important point. When we make the effort to learn the stories behind the illustration, we might just find the healing we’ve been looking for.

Receive Your Inheritance

September 12, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 4:1–7

We used to be slaves. But God sent HIS son, so we could BE sons. Now we are heirs with an eternal inheritance, and the downpayment we get to enjoy NOW is the Holy Spirit.

Agitators & The Purpose of the Law

September 5, 2021 • Jevon Washington • Galatians 3:15–29

The purpose of the Law was to separate God's covenant people from the rest of world, to be a light to the nations through the promise of Abraham. Without understanding the Jewishness of Jesus, we rob ourselves of joy, create Gospel perversions, and rob God of His Glory.

The Blessing (and Curse) of the Cross

August 29, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 3:10–14

To free us from the curse, Christ became a curse for us. Beneath the scandal of this concept is deep assurance, and a glimpse of two things God cares about far more than we realize.

Supernatural or Superficial?

August 22, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 3:1–9

When Paul first mentions the Holy Spirit in his letter to the Galatians, he makes foundational declarations for our understanding of God to rest upon. Chief among them: our god is a god of miracles, and our faith is either supernatural or superficial.

The Wall, The Curtain and the Cross

August 15, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 2:15–21

Justification is all about being declared righteous, and getting to enjoy complete acceptance from God and God’s people. The “cross-shaped” gospel is the good news that Jesus has torn down what used to divide us — from God, and from one another.

The Virus of Hypocrisy, the Cure of Repentance

August 8, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 2:11–14

Hypocrisy is deeply hurtful, highly contagious, and a hindrance to the gospel. So, we take it seriously by giving and receiving loving correction as needed.

Remember the Gospel, Remember the Poor

August 1, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 2:1–10

When false teachers and false gospels come after your freedom, don't submit for even a moment. Cling to the freedom you have in the grace of Christ.

The Gospel is Changing Us

July 25, 2021 • Josh Loy • Galatians 1:11–24

“What has Jesus changed about your life? Where in your life do you see an ongoing need for change?” Paul’s dramatic-change reveals the true gospel. Meeting Jesus is the beginning of a slow, imperfect walk toward Jesus, until we see Him face-to-face.

You Can't Serve Two Masters

July 18, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 1:10

It's impossible to be a people-pleaser and a servant of Christ at the same time. The delight God wants for us is sabotaged when we seek the approval of people instead of resting in the approval that is already ours through the Gospel. Time for a heart check.

Don't Turn Away

July 11, 2021 • Brian McCormack • Galatians 1:1–9

When Paul hears the churches in Galatia are being drawn away from the Gospel of grace, he channels his deep concern into a passionate plea to cling to the good news of Jesus. When voices distorting the Gospel rise up in our own lives, we must rise up as well.
