Galatians Lesson #22 — Glory in the Cross

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

This morning Pastor Dan finishes his series from the book of Galatians (6:11 ~ 18). During the final verses of this great epistle Paul makes some pointed comments that serve us well even today. Listen and heed would be key words for today!

What do you brag about? Where is your boasting? The apostle Paul clearly tells us where his boasting was and how it should be our point of boasting as well. He boasted only in the cross of Christ and so should we.Galatians

Galatians Lesson #21 — “Sowing and Reaping”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Galatians 6:7 ~ 10 is the text for today. Of the immeasurable truths found in God's Word, none is more profound nor easier identified than that of sowing and reaping. Basically, you get what you plant and in the measure you sow. Sow heartily reap heartily: Sow sparingly reap sparingly... the choice is yours, but the results are strictly God's to decide.

Galatians Lesson #20 — “Spiritual Living”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Galatians 5:26 ~ 6:6 is todays text. One of the greatest challenges we (yes! you and I) will ever facee is extending grace and restoration to the brother who is struggling.  What drives us to not give that what God has commanded us? Pastor Dan Scarberry lays an easy understanding of why we resist giving what each of us richly desire to receive. 

Join us today as we explore the Word of God together. Pointing Lives to Jesus Christ is more than a motto or slogan, it is our only mission.

Galatians Lesson #19 — “Keeping in Step With the Spirit”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

The contrast between being flesh controlled and Spirit led is more than following a list of do's and don'ts. It is a continual, living battle between the desires of the flesh and the power of the Spirit. Verse #24 is the key to the battle: Only those in Christ can find true victory over the desires of the flesh through the power of the Spirit.

Todays text is Galatians 5:16 ~ 26 with other verses being referenced in to make a clear point of the throroughness of Scripture.

Galatians Lesson #18 — “The Struggle is Real!”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Galatians 5:126 ~ 18 gives us clear proof that the stuggle is real. Furthermore, the struggle is indeed winable, but only if we yield to the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Dan also points us back to the 7th chapter of Romans to help us understand how all of Scripture fits together in a way that only a Holy and eternal God could have accomplished.

Galatians Lesson #17 — “Using Freedom Wisely to Serve”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Galatians 5:13 ~ 15 is todays text: How we use our freedom in Christ is the greatest of issues facing the church today. Pastor Dan not only confronts the issue, but he grabs it and brings it to the very forefront of our thinking. How we love each other is by serving each other...serving each other in the love of Christ.

Galatians Lesson #16 — “Using Our Freedom Wisely”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Pastor Dan continues his exposition of the book of Galatians with this strong admonition from the 5th chapter. Using our freedom wisely is not a license to live in liberty nor is it reason to allow false doctrine in to your life (or the church). Verse 9 has warning about a small amount of leaven and how even the smallest amount of untruth polutes thoroughly.

As you listen through thismessage Pastor Dan will reference several verses (Romans 6:17; 1 Peter 1:22; Deut. 23:1 and 1 Cor. 1: 18, 21~23). We would recommend that you take opportunity to read long with him as he references these passages.

Galatians Lesson #15 — “What Really Counts?”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Galatians paints a chrystal clear picture of What Really Counts and some of us may find we have it wrong. During this week of terrible events, we realize that God's word speaks straight to our heart and to the issue of where our focus should be.

Follow along as we work through the 15th installment from the book of Galatians. This morning we will be looking in to chapter 5 verses 1 through 6.

Galatians Lesson #14 — “Two Mothers, Two Sons, Two Covenants”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

When we accept Christ, we free ourselves from being sons of slavery. We become sons of freedom instead.

Galatians Lesson #13 — “Christ Formed in You”

Posted by jibchurch in Galatians

Legalism is a dangerous practice. Many of us don't realize we're doing it, but it prevents the forming of Christ-likeness in our lives.
