Sermons on Galatians

Restoring One Another

Our message from Galatians 6:1 encourages us to embrace the good grace of being corrected by our brethren. But there is so much more to it than that. We learn that isolation is unbecoming of a Christian, for we are family. In this message, five lessons from our text and some application drives home the necessity for healthy church members to be…

Freedom, The Flesh, and Loving your Neighbor – Gal 5:13-26

In this sermon, Pastor Brown walks us through the second half of Galatians chapter 5.  Here Paul commands the Galatians, and us, that we should not use our freedom in Christ as an opportunity for the flesh, but to serve one another through love.  Paul also contrasts the natures of unbelievers and believers.  Thirdly, Paul gives warnings about internal fighting within the church.  And lastly, he ends with…

Christianity, Heresy and The Offensive Religion

We continue our study in Paul’s letter to Galatia with Galatians 5:7-12. Here we confront the topic of heresy. In this message, Pastor Head shows that obedience to the truth (v.8) is illustrated by one of Paul’s favorite analogies – the foot race. The Galatians have been hindered from running the good race because of the Judaizer’s false doctrine. They have been…

An Allegory of Ishamel and Isaac – Descent by Flesh or Sons by Spirit?

In this message we see how Paul presses the Judaizers’ argument to its necessary outcome to show that claiming sonship from Abraham by the flesh leads to damnation. Only those who are sons by Spirit have the hope of reaching the eternal Jerusalem above. Thus, the Judaizers and all who point to Father Abraham by physical birthright are actually more like Ishamel,…

Galatians 4:12-20 – Good Shepherds, False Teachers, Avoiding Snares

In this section of Galatians, Paul’s pastoral heart is on display, and the Apostle also gives insight into the false teachers who had bewitched the Galatian churches.  In this message, Pastor Brown examines Paul’s ministry and contrasts it with that of the Judaizers, and false teachers in general.  He discusses how we can spot a false teacher, and how to…

Born Slaves or Adopted Sons Part 2

We re-visit Galatians 4:1-11 to explore the glorious doctrines of adoption and sonship. In part 1 of this two part sermon, we studied guardianship, then focused on slavery and bondage to the elementary principles of the world. In this second part, we learn that merely being set free from bondage and death is only half of the story. We need more. Come…

Born Slaves or Adopted Sons Part 1

We tackle Paul’s appeal to the Galatians as delivered in chapter 4:1-11. Here, we find some of the most encouraging words in the whole epistle regarding our status as sons and the gospel work of Christ that makes us so. But we also are reminded that before Christ’s work on our behalf, we were slaves, not sons. Recall that in Galatia, the…

The Deadly Performance-Based Life

Our text for today is Galatians 3:1-6 where we discover Paul returning to the Galatian problem with strong language. Our focus is verse 3, “Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” In this sermon, we are challenged to consider our own tendency to revert to law-keeping and living a performance-based life of law-keeping and futile striving…
