The redeemed are Sons of God, heirs therefore. Christ overcame the 'heir pressure' of the law, and the 'polluted heir' of sin and death, to make 'pure heir'... 'clean heir'.
The 10 commandments adorns the edifice and hallways of many government buildings in America. Yet they are increasingly attacked and torn from any mention or illustration in many public venues across this same land. America can hardly survive such an attack on it's very foundation. But in a day of such moral confusion, it behooves the church to understand clearly the purpose of the law. As Paul asked in Gal 3:19 "What then is the purpose of the law?"
Part 2 on revival. If revival is that which causes us to live again spiritually, then what does this life look like?
Psalm 85:6 "Will you not revive us again, that we may rejoice in you?" What are the broader yet deeper characteristics of one who is revived in the Lord?
How passionate are you to see the purposes of Jesus Christ accomplished on this planet through your life? What would cause us to DESIRE His purpose, more than the petty desires that keep our lives from meaning much of anything eternal?
Is the Christian life really this hard... or is it just me? If this question 'feels' like something you identify with... the come be revived by the truth!
Tutus 2:11-12 tells us the lessons that God's grace teaches us. We will stand before the Lord one day to give account. Let's get it in gear!
An amazing and deep example supports Paul's defense of the Gospel in Gal 3.
We are back! Back to our Galatians series entitled "Born (Again) Free". In Galatians 3 Paul begins his doctrinal defense of the gospel of grace, going way back to the roots of Judaism and of faith, the man Abraham. A confident understanding of the gospel and of righteousness is a prerequisite to sharing it.
Are you growing in Christ? Are you changing? Sometimes Christians spend years in their churches doing "boundary marker" Christianity without any deep and dynamic soul change. Let's get S.O.F.T so that we grow into the real thing in Christ that accomplishes real and lasting things for Christ by the dynamic power of Christ!
