You Foolish Galatians!!!

Our Blog is about Grace. God’ Riches at Christ’s Expense, someone has said. You will find an occasional article on a different subject but our main focus is the Grace of God. It is clear that many Christians do not understand the Grace of God.

Paul dealt with this issue almost constantly. Judaizers and other Jewish Christians insisted that new gentile converts keep the law of Moses in order to be saved. Paul deals with these issues as straightforwardly as he can throughout his epistles but especially in Galatians and Ephesians.

Many Christians today feel like they must earn God’s love and blessing. This could not be farther from the truth. Paul called the Galatians foolish for going back to the law after being saved by the grace of God. Some translations translate “foolish” in some pretty derogatory ways!

The author of Hebrews says we have been perfected forever. These are the issues we will discuss in this blog.

Now upfront, I would like to state that I am not making light of sin or teaching people that it is okay to sin. Sin is terrible and opens the door for Satan to destroy your life and drive you away from God. But what I am going to prove to you from scripture is that as a believer your sin s forgiven past, present, and future. When God looks at you, he sees a perfected spirit washed clean of sin, all because of what Jesus did on the cross, not because of something you did or do.

Some will say this is heresy, because the traditions of the church say differently. Well, I am sorry, but I cannot agree. Any doctrine that teaches that you must do this or that to be saved is a false doctrine. We are saved by the grace of God alone–not by anything we can ever do. How much were you praying and fasting before you were saved? NONE!

If by obeying the law we could be saved, there was no reason for Jesus to die. But by His death, He has satisfied the penalty that we deserved forever.

Please stop by often. This teaching can change your life. It certainly did mine.

The Spirit of Christmas–What are these feelings of peace, joy, and giving?

Every year about this time you hear people talking about the Christmas Spirit. Almost everyone falls prey to this phenomenon, although to different degrees. If you will be honest, you will have to admit that you get the Christmas Spirit. It usually comes along between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

For some it is a feeling of peace and joy. Giving to charitable organizations increases. Some do things they would not normally do other times of year.

What if I told you that you could maintain this attitude year round?

This spirit of love, giving, peace, joy, longsuffering, patience, security, and well-being has been made available to all who will receive it in faith.

I am speaking of the Holy Spirit of God made available by the blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

I personally believe that the Holy Spirit loves this time of year. He gets to anounce the Good News of Jesus Christ and convict those who are lost. Non-believers are shown the true Spirit of giving and love. God gave His only Son that we might be saved and guided by the Holy Spirit that indwells the Christian.

If you are an unbeliever and have felt the Christmas Spirit, consider inviting the Spirit of God into your life and feel the fruits of the Spirit as you submit to HIm.

God is offering you the ultimate “fruit basket” that comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit–love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, , gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22)
Who says fruit baskets are crummy gifts?!!

Secular society is trying its best to take Jesus away from Christmas and I will admit they have succeeded in some areas. But they will never be able to take away the true Spirit of Christmas—Jesus Christ.

If you would like more information or are considering being able to maintain this wonderful Spirit year round, please contact us. We aren’t here to judge you or your past or present. We just want to share with you the Great News of Jesus Christ. I am not talking about religion. I am talking about something real and tangible–a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.
