Untitled Sermon (2)
First off we need to talk about what Paul is pounding in to the Galatians heads.
A. He is saying that No matter what you do, what image you try to uphold, who you are trying to be like it will not bring you any closer to Christ.
This is like trying to have your life together so that people actually think your a good Christian. (Personal Example)
The only thing that will bring you to Christ in the first place is Trusting in Him, that is the start of every relationship. the only way we grow closer with Christ is through a relationship with Him, not our rap sheet.
A little yeast goes a long way. In other words the person or thing that is hindering your walk might not make a huge difference now, but if you dont root it out quickly it will takeover your walk.
Example, David and Bathsheeba.
While we do have freedom, we shoudnt take advantage of it. Meaning that we know that we are in Christ so we have forgiveness. instead we should use it to serve each other. we should remind people who are going through sinful seasons about where forgiveness is and who they should be running to, and where freedom is found.
