Part 1. Far from being irrelevant, the Ten Commandments are God’s best way to live. We’ve all fallen short of them, but God has saved us anyway. Day by day, we can obey God’s word as we walk by the power of the Holy Spirit.
A one degree alteration in your course, over a period of time, will change the whole trajectory of your life. So what do you want to do this year? How can we grow in our walk with God?
Part 12. When we read Galatians 6 it’s easy to think of boasting as simply a childish act. But we consider three points: 1) that boasting is alive and well in the modern world, 2) that it is an inevitable feature of human life, and 3) that there is only one solution.
Part 11. Motivation changes when we understand grace. We don’t mind subjecting ourselves to another when they gave it all to set us free.
Part 10. We can be legally declared free and yet still live a life of slavery. If we don’t enter into our freedom, it’s like Christ died for nothing.
Part 9. Galatians 4 contrasts two types of people: the slave and the free.
Part 8. If we accept Jesus, we are welcomed and adopted into God’s family as sons and daughters. We become heirs with an incredible inheritance. Why then would we go back and give our lives to the worthless things of this world?
Part 7. Being in Christ is now our primary identity, not our gender, race or class. This is good news for both the individual and the entire world: every division has been done away with.
Part 6. It’s only through faith in Jesus that we can know God. Placing confidence in anything else will fail and obscure us from him.
