Under Christ you’re not obligated to the Law. In fact, the law has never brought salvation for anyone. It simply was given to direct us to our need for God and to give us a clear picture of just how far our rebellion has taken us from Him. As Pastor Bill will point out in today’s message, if you’re going to keep the law – which is a good thing – just make sure your heart knows where it’s salvation truly lies. Keeping the law should only be done out of gratitude for God’s grace and a desire to honor Him.

Paul lived his life FULLY devoted to the calling Jesus had placed on his heart. He suffered, he struggled, he desired all those he’d met to truly know and trust Jesus. He gave his entire life to make sure as many as possible knew the absolute truth about the gospel. Today, Pastor Bill will challenge you to examine your life. Is there evidence that you follow and love Jesus? Are you willing to follow and obey Jesus in whatever he calls you to in order that others may come to know Jesus and his good news?

Before you knew Christ, perhaps you recognize just how broken your life was. There was pride, selfishness, unease and sin. Yet, the moment you believe, Christ promised his peace and mercy to any who would walk in faith in Him. As Pastor Bill explains today, Christ begins to change who you are. He makes you a new creation. Old desires and sins begin to leave and you begin to live a new life, focused on God in your growing faith. You receive mercy you don’t deserve and the peace of knowing you’re right with God because of Jesus.

A very real threat to the early church in Galatia was the super religious people trying to gain status or make a good showing by inducing followers to obey certain standards of religion. The motivation of their heart was wicked. It was not focused on God, though they claimed to believe in Jesus. Today Pastor Bill will cause you to check your heart motivation in your service to God. Do you simply focus on reaching a high number of conversion to brag about that? Or do you boast in Jesus, his life and sacrifice, and his amazing power in you?
