    Faith that Works Scripture:
    James 4:1-6
    -
    Speaker: Lukus Counterman - James 4:1-6 presents a key problem that can exist even amongst the people of God. They still fight with each other - maybe in the home, at work, or even in the church. Where does this come fro...

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - We reap what we sow. If we are faithful and conscientious in our sowing, then we can confidently expect a good harvest. On the other hand, Job tells us that if we plough evil and sow trouble, we’ll reap it (Job. 4:8). In the closing section of Galatians, Paul has a few final admonitions. At first glance they appear to be very loosely connected or perhaps even disconnected. But the link that ties them together is the great principle of sowing and reaping. It is a principle of order and consistency written into all of life. May the Lord help us to sow in the field of the Spirit and thereby reap life through him. May the Lord help us receive his truth and live accordingly as we examine Galatians 6:6-10.

Speaker: Pastor Jon Kopp - We live in a world dominated by fear. Fear is natural to every one of us. Noone has to learn to be afraid. Everyone of us was afraid before there was any logical reason for it. But, God doesn’t want us to live that way. In fact, he offers a solution for fear. And it isn’t a cold formula. It isn’t us toughening up and gritting through life. It doesn’t involve hiding who we really are or pretending to be something we aren’t. It is actually found in knowing a very basic truth. God’s solution to fear is a Father. And that Father is Himself. He is so concerned that we know that He is our caring Father, He has made it the Holy Spirit’s job to help us experience that truth in our souls. The path then to fully experiencing life as a child of God is found in following the Spirit.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The first and great evidence of our walking by the Spirit or being filled with the Spirit is not some private mystical experience of our own, but our practical relationships of love with other people. Since the first fruit of the Spirit is love, this is only logical. But it is easy to talk about “love” in an abstract and general way; it is much harder to get down to concrete, particular situations in which we actually demonstrate our love for one another. Paul takes time in Galatians 5:25-6:5 to see the practical out-workings of love for those who are walking by the Spirit. May the Lord help us to love not in word or tongue, but in deed and truth by the power of his Spirit.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The main emphasis of the second half of Galatians is that in Christ, life is liberty. We were in bondage under the curse or condemnation of the law, but Christ has set us free from it. We were slaves of sin, but now we are God’s children. Yet each time Paul writes of liberty he adds a warning that it can very easily be lost. Some relapse from liberty into bondage (Gal. 5:1); others turn their liberty into license (Gal. 5:13). This was Paul’s theme in the beginning of chapter five. He has emphasized that true Christian liberty expresses itself in self-control, loving service, and obedience to God. The question now is, how are these things possible? And the answer is, by the Holy Spirit. He alone can keep us truly free.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The false teachers in the Galatian churches were saying that Christian converts had to be circumcised. You might think that it was a trivial matter, but Paul indicates that there were doctrinal implications associated with it. Circumcision was not merely a physical operation or a ceremonial rite. It was a theological symbol of self-effort in conflict with the grace meted out through the cross. Salvation has never been by good works or law keeping. It has always been by grace through faith in Christ. Paul asserts in Galatians 5:1-15 that you cannot add circumcision (or anything else for that matter) to Christ as necessary for salvation because Christ is sufficient in himself. If you add anything to Christ, you lose Christ. And so Paul calls believers to liberty in the grace of Christ. Not legalism, not license, but liberty directed and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Speaker: Josh Longoria - In his letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul writes “I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified”. We must stand firmly on this same truth that our only hope of salvation is Christ crucified. Hebrews 10 reveals the significance of Jesus’ death from a theological standpoint: Christ is the sufficient sacrifice. He is the better sacrifice. Throughout the book of Hebrews, the author reveals how Christ is better. He is better than the angels, better than the prophets, better than Moses, and better than the old sacrifices.
