As believers, we have so much freedom in Christ. We’re free from the bondage of sin, for salvation. We’re free from self. We’re free from Satan. And we’re free from the bondage to the law. So that now we’ve been made free by Christ, we must guard against allowing our liberty to be stolen by license. Find out more about what this means, when you join us for today’sTreasured Truth.

In Galatians 5, Paul was trying to help the Galatians believers understand that they were relying on the law to save them, then that necessitated obedience to all the law. They couldn’t just can’t pick and choose! They couldn’t say, ‘We want to obey some of the commandments, not all of the commandments.’ Pastor Ford will help us understand more of what Paul was teaching the Galatians about this important pointon today’s Treasured Truth.

As we continue our study in Galatians, Pastor Ford will remind us about what Paul was trying to teach the Galatian believers—that we as believers need to understand the more human effort we bring to the table when it comes to the process of our salvation, the more we end up nullifying God’s grace.

Transitions from Doctrine to Duty, Part 3

4/15/2019

According to Paul, the Galatians had the clear and simple message of salvation, but they let the Judaizers come along and add stuff to it. So, they had a salvific message, and they let others add stuff to it that took the truth away from them and made the message of non-effect.

Many people are changing the definition of sin and they’re twisting the message of the Word of God, just to make it palatable to unbelievers. But when we go out to reach our communities, Pastor Ford encourages us to take to heart what D.L. Moody used to say, “The Word of God is like a lion! You don’t have to defend it, just let it go,” so it can do it’s work in the hearts of the lost.

Transitions from Doctrine to Duty, Part 2

4/12/2019
More
As we learn more about how we can transition from doctrine to duty, Pastor Ford will explain that what is learned in the holy place, should be lived in the marketplace. So, he’ll encourage us to take what we are learning in church with us and share it with the world. If we were doing that more often, then more people would be attracted to what we have and want to become a part of the church themselves.

In the passage we’ll be studying today from Galatians 5, Paul says, “Stand fast therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. And be not entangled again, with the yoke of bondage.” So, Pastor Ford will explain what he means is that the law doesn’t empower us, it enslaves us. And if we try to follow the law, we end up with legalism, rather than liberty.

Gave Me Liberty, Part 2

Pastor Ford will help us understand that when we are not keeping the Lord’s commandments, we are not loving Him. He’ll also address this question—what does it mean for us to be committed to Jesus Christ? It means we love what Jesus loves and we hate what Jesus hates. And that’s when we know we’re committed to Christ.

Have you ever received a pardon, but refused it? Today we’ll hear about a man named George Wilson, who did just that. And Pastor Ford will explain that there are too many people who are like that. God gives them the pardon they need, but they reject His offer.

An Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 6

4/8/2019
More
As our study continues in Galatians chapter 4, today we’ll see that just like Abraham and Sarah received a promise from God, we all as believers, have received a promise too. It’s the promise that we will be delivered from the penalty of our sins through grace. The new covenant frees us from the law and now we have the hope of salvation, but it’s only found in grace. To find out more about God’s free gift of grace, join us for today’s Treasured Truth.

Pastor Ford will remind us today, that if we’re going to make any kind of impact in this world whatsoever, we’re going to have to be people who are flexible enough to change, or we’re never going to make it. We’ll consider this truth today as we look further at how to reach out to those who need Christ in our communities.

An Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 5

4/5/2019

Salvation is by grace. So, in salvation, we don’t help God out. As we look at the passage we’re studying today, Pastor Ford will explain that Paul is saying the promise God made to Abraham and Sarah is very much like our salvation. God does not need our help to perform anything or to bring anything to pass, no matter what it is. He does not need our help to save us.

An Old Story with a New Meaning, Part 4

As we continue to look at the story that Paul allegorizes in Galatians chapter 4, we’ll see that he wants to help the Galatians understand that they are trying in vain to get salvation from the law, when the law was never designed to give us our salvation. We can’t get salvation by the things that we do. And that’s Paul’s entire argument—salvation is by grace alone.

As we continue to look at this old story with a new meaning, Pastor Ford will remind us that Biblical hermeneutics follows a simple formula—when the literal sense makes plain sense, seek no other sense, lest you abandon common sense and end up with nonsense.

In Galatians chapter 4, Paul takes the Old Testament story about Abraham, Sarah, and Isaace and allegorizes it. Today we’re going to dig into this passage and see what timeless truths Paul is trying to get us to understand by giving this old story a new meaning.

The Law and Grace don’t mix. But the Apostle Paul was having a hard time communicating that fact to the Galatian believers and convincing them it was the truth. So, he took a story from the Old Testament and allegorized it, giving it a new twist that helped them to understand. To hear how Paul used an old story with a new meaning in his letter to the Galatians, join us for today’sTreasured Truth.

Jesus practiced incarnational ministry. We’ll see today how Jesus went to where He knew the woman at the well would be, so He could meet her in her place of need. He didn’t tell her to come to church, or come to synagogue….He took church to her! And that’s what we have to do in our own communities—take church to the lost people around us.

The Importance of Sound Doctrine, Part 3

3/29/2019

The Apostle Paul set an example for us when he was addressing the Galatian believers about the errors of their doctrine. He equated the process to the “travails of childbirth” as he struggled to help them understand. His ultimate goal was see the likeness of Christ formed in them. So, we can learn from Paul as we seek to assist our own fellow believers who may have accepted false doctrines that don’t line up with the truth found in God’s Word.

How do you reach someone with the truth of God’s Word, when they are confused about a doctrinal issue and believing an error? You have to start by showing them your genuine concern for them and allowing them to sense your heart of compassion for them. If you don’t start there, then they may confuse you with the “doctrine police” and you may miss the opportunity to help them understand the truth.

As we consider the importance of having sound doctrine, Pastor Ford will explain that we have to concerned about the truth of the gospel and that we maintain the clarity and truth of it. But we also have to have a heart. And we have to lovingly correct those around us who may have been duped by doctrinal error.
