What you believe about Jesus flows into every area of your life. Most of our life is spent in some form of waiting and what we believe about those times is crucial - Is God denying you? Is he wasting time and will you ever get it back? Why does He seem to hold off? The truth is that God is never late - He is always on time. This truth will let hope rise in your heart and help you wherever you are
"It was for freedom that Christ has set us free..." Is that your experience? In the last of this series Andrew looks at what Paul describes as being truly free. It goes deep and all of life flows from there. This is more than just good circumstances but a freedom from every restriction of sin. That is what Jesus sets us free for. Be encouraged!
In week four of our series in Galatians, Pastor Andrew shows us how every good thing that is Jesus' is yours right now. And not because of anything that you have done.
So what do you need? Paul in Galatians 4 uses two analogies to help us to understand why we live in freedom and not law. He tells us again and again that you are not a slave you are a son. Listen and find out what that means for you today.
When you look at the world what do you see? How do you view your life and and God's love for you? In this talk Phil considers how the healing of the blind man from Bethsaida relates to spiritual insight. The ability to see the unseen comes from insight and that is found only in the person of Jesus. In Him we see things as they are not as they should be.
In week three of our Cornerstone series, Pastor Andrew shows us how our problem is not God, Jesus or the completed work of the cross, our problem is that we get in the way of believing that Jesus accomplished all that he said he did.
Paul reminds us in Galatians, that if we are not focused on Jesus - who he is and what he did, then we believe in another Gospel. If we have a gospel that adds to the finished work of the Gospel, then we believe that Jesus' work did not fully achieve what he set out to. How foolish!
Thank God that we don't need circumcision, or any type of work to add to the salvation and grace that Jesus offers freely to us. Jesus did not die to restrict us, but to set us fully free from every type of chain, restriction and bond!
Praise God that whoever the Son has set free, is free indeed!
