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?

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.

As God works on sanctifying you to become more like Jesus, he will grow in you a desire to be a part of the work of God. He will increase your generosity and willingness to give in order to grow a harvest of believers. Today, Pastor Bill will encourage you to plant the word of salvation – tell others of Jesus and his grace. If you tell the gospel to others and support others who do that, you are sewing good seed that will produce believers. Don’t grow weary in the work, God will bring fruit in His time.
