Galatians: Truth on Fire

Branded for Christ: A Solemn Call to Glory in the Cross

Galatians 6:11-18 – October 14, 2001

Six months after we started, we come at last to the end of our journey through the book of Galatians. It has been an exciting trip! Time and again we have been brought face to face with the grace of God as the only hope of our salvation. Along the way we have seen a […]

The Law of the Harvest: God’s Plan for Spiritual Prosperity

Galatians 6:6-10 – October 7, 2001

Over lunch this week, a friend and I discussed the spiritual implications of the terrorist attacks on America. My friend commented that this ought to be a wake-up call to every Christian to seek first the kingdom of God. It’s time for each of us to figure out what really matters and then get busy […]

Restoring the Fallen, Helping the Hurting: Two Ways You Can Serve the Lord

Galatians 6:1-5 – September 23, 2001

We begin with a famous story from the early days of the Salvation Army. As the eyes of the nation have focused on the rescue and recovery efforts in New York City, the work of the Salvation Army has been easy to spot. Soon after those hijacked planes hit the twin towers, the Salvation Army […]

Does Jesus Live in Oak Park?

Galatians 5:19-26 – September 9, 2001

“Perfect what you have begun, and grant me what you have made me long for.” Prayer of Anselm of Canterbury This week I was reading a massive book by Donald L. Miller called City of the Century. Subtitled “The Epic of Chicago and the Making of America,” it traces Chicago from its earliest days as […]

Full Speed Ahead One Step at a Time: How You Can Walk in the Spirit Every Day

Galatians 5:16-18 – August 26, 2001

“I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don’t do what you want. But if you are led […]

Risky Business: The Other Side of Christian Freedom

Galatians 5:13-15 – August 12, 2001

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free” (Galatians 5:1a). What exactly is this Christian freedom that Paul talks so much about in Galatians? In order to help us understand the answer, I’d like to borrow a definition and an illustration used by Pastor John Piper of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. […]

The Only Thing That Matters: Faith That Works By Love

Galatians 5:1-12 – August 5, 2001

These are the closing words of the Declaration of Independence: We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly Publish […]

A Tale of Two Women: Are You a Child of Promise?

Galatians 4:21-31 – July 22, 2001

Almost all the commentators agree that this is the hardest passage in the book of Galatians. It’s not easy to understand on a quick reading exactly what Paul means to say. Or perhaps more accurately, we know in general terms what he is trying to say; it’s how he says it that trips us up. […]

What Happened to All Your Joy?A Lesson in Spiritual Pediatrics

July 15, 2001

I want to begin this sermon not with a comment on the text but with a personal update. I’ve been on the road a lot lately, most of the time preaching in various conferences. My travels have taken me to New York in May, to Wheaton in June, and to Michigan in late June and […]

Born Free: Seven Promises You Can Count On

Galatians 3:15-4:11 – July 1, 2001

The book of Galatians is all about how we can be right with God. Paul wrote this little “emergency letter” to remind us that being right with God is about believing, not achieving. Salvation is not about going to church, being religious, trying harder, or turning over a new leaf. You can’t purchase a ticket […]

Two Ways to Go to Heaven: Make Sure You Choose the Right One

Galatians 3:1-14 – June 17, 2001

With this sermon we turn a corner in our journey through Galatians. This short letter has three parts: The Personal Section: Chapters 1-2 The Doctrinal Section: Chapters 3-4 The Practical Section: Chapters 5-6 As we begin the Doctrinal Section of the book, I need to tell you that there are some verses that are fairly […]

How God Saves Sinners: Coming to Grips with Justification by Faith

Galatians 2:15-21 – June 10, 2001

I’d like to begin this message with a statement of the problem we all face. When I use the phrase “we all,” I’m referring to the entire human race. There is a problem so fundamental that it is at the root of all the other problems we have. Stated in one sentence, it goes like […]

Bad Manners at the Dinner Table: A Powerful Lesson in Biblical Confrontation

Galatians 2:11-14 – June 3, 2001

This is a sermon about conflict in the church—where it comes from and how to handle it. As a place to begin, I’d like to start with the observation that most church conflicts fall into one of two categories. Let’s talk first about the second category. Category 2 conflicts are those disagreements that are non-biblical […]

“We Did Not Give in to Them:” Why Unity Must be Based on Truth

Galatians 2:1-10 – May 20, 2001

I want to begin by calling your attention to the most important verse in our passage—verse 5, which reads, “We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you.” If you didn’t know anything else about the background of that statement, two things would […]

How a Terrorist Became an Evangelist: The Amazing Story of Paul’s Conversion

Galatians 1:11-24 – May 13, 2001

Christianity is supremely a religion of conversion. Everything we say and everything we believe is built upon one fundamental and revolutionary premise: You don’t have to stay the way you are. Your life can be radically changed by God. Conversion is a miracle that happens when the life of God intersects with human personality. Once […]

Only One Gospel: Why We Preach an Unpopular Doctrine

Galatians 1:1-10 – May 6, 2001

Today we are beginning a brand-new sermon series on the book of Galatians. Whenever a pastor starts a new series, especially an exposition of a book of the Bible, it’s always useful to know why this book and why now. After all, there are 65 other books in the Bible. So why study Galatians now? […]
