Responsible Freedom

This morning, Brother Danny shared with us from the book of Galatians chapter 5, verses 13 through 16. In this passage, the Apostle Paul command his readers to follow a different way of servitude. He reminded them that they would either be slaves to their own nature, slaves to the law (as the Judaizers were teaching them), or they could live the life that Jesus calls all of his followers to: Serving others in love through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Free Indeed!

This morning, Brother Danny continued leading us through the book of Galatians, chapter 5, verses 1 mthrough 6. In this passage, the Apostle Paul teaches his readers that because of our salvation through Christ, we are free from bondage to the law, bondage to sin, and bondage to guilt. We should celebrate that we are no longer slaves to the curse of sin. We should also heed the dire warning against legalism or licentiousness in our lives. We can live free through our faith in Jesus Christ.

A Tale of Two Mothers

Today we had another great sermon by Bro. Danny about how we should treat our promise of freedom in Christ, by discussing the tale of two mothers. In this tale Pual changed his teaching style to draw attention to his teaching. We should celebrate th promise of our freedom in the depths of our being.

Let No Walls Divide Us!

Today Bro. Danny continues through the book of Galations reminding us that we need to not let ourselves build walls around us. We must talk to others and not let the fear of self sacrifice separate us from others. As we continue through our walks of life, we should be compassionate toward others even to the point of giving ourselves up.

Changing the Old Into the New

Today Brother Bill joined us once once again to lead us through the book of John. Today’s message was taken from chapter 2 verses 1 through 12. This passage tells the story of how Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding in Cana. One important thing to note is that Jesus respectfully told Mary how He was now following God’s will and not her’s. We all need to remember, that when it comes to authority, God should be our number 1.

From Slaves to God's Sons

This morning, Brother Danny shared with the congregation from the first 11 verses of Galatians chapter 4. In this passage, the Apostle Paul used the example of roman children to demonstrate to the Galatians that going back to the slavery to the Law, and their inability to keep it was akin to a grown adult seeking to put themselves back under the authority of their parent’s guardian’s authority, in effect, throwing away their freedom. For the Christian to try to “earn” their righteousness, by adherence to the law would be placing themselves back in the condition of being lost. Praise God that His righteousness is sufficient for our salvation!

We Are One in Christ!

This morning, Brother Danny used Galatians 3:26-29 to remind the church that we are one in Christ. For those who have accepted Jesus in faith, who are saved by God’s grace, are His childre. God does not play favorites, not does he show partiality. We, the people of God, need to stop acting like our external distinctions make us better than someone else, when in God’s family, there is no degree of separation between his children.

What Good is the Law?

As we continue to journey through the book of Galations Bro. Danny reminded us of the purpose of the Law. This message is one of great importance that we need to remember always. We all need to be thankful that God has opened our eyes to the truth of our sin through the Law.

God's Promise Does Not Change

As we continue our study of the book of Galations Bro. Danny reminded us that no matter what happens God’s promises never change. God has made a binding covenant that willl never fail, so as we go throughout our lives we need to remember that God will never break his promises and that He is worthy of placing our faith in.

Galations 3:15-18     Bro. Danny Nance     May 1st, 2022

Fully and Finally Free

As we continue on our journey through the book of Galations Bro. Danny told us of the alternatives that we can choose from. He reminded us of how relying on personal performence to build a relationship with God would end horribly and that the best way of building a relationship is by trusting in the accomplishment of Christ.
