The Unadulterated Gospel

Pastor Caleb Galloway"The Unadulterated Gospel"Galatians 2:1-10 ESVThe true Gospel calls us to relinquish control of our lives, and of our ability to save ourselves. Salvation is a gift; it's not earned. What should our response be? To listen and respond to the teaching of the Gospel, and to allow the truth to saturate our thoughts.Galatians 2:1-10 (ESV)Paul Accepted by the Apostles2 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 2 I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain. 3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery— 5 to them we did not yield in subm...

Not Man Pleasing but What God was Pleased to Do

Pastor Rusty Milton"Not Man-Pleasing, but What God Was Please to Do"Galatians 1:11-24 ESVDo you yearn for the approval of those around you, but feel overwhelmed with the fear of rejection ? To follow Christ is to be free from the slavery of man-pleasing. Paul addresses this notion in Galatians 1, declaring that his message is focused not on pleasing those in the church, but on spreading the Gospel of Christ. And the Gospel fundamentally focuses on what God was pleased to do for mankind, not on what will please mankind. Let the spreading of the Gospel be your guide for how you should act toward others. If we are focused on Christ as our audience, then the fear of men will decrease.Galatians 1:11-24 English Standard Version (ESV)Paul Called by God11 For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel.[a] 12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have hea...

Grace for Hard Boiled Sinners

Pastor Rusty Milton"Grace for the Hard Boiled Sinners"Galatians 1:1-10 ESVGod calls us in Gospel-grace. God gives us his righteousness through Christ, not through any of our own righteousness. The world calls us to a different "gospel," one which emphasizes political, ceremonial, or legal righteousness, and is human-centric. The true gospel, however, is focused solely on Christ and Christ alone--seeking neither to add nor take away anything. Where do you find your righteousness?Galatians 1:1-10 English Standard Version (ESV)Greeting1 Paul, an apostle—not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— 2 and all the brothers[a] who are with me,To the churches of Galatia:3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.No Other Gospel6 I am astoni...

Repairing Our Strength and Restoring Our Condition

Pastor Rusty Milton"Repairing Our Strength and Restoring Our Condition"Isaiah 65 ESVWhen Jesus returns to make all things new, all the effects of the curse will be reversed. Our hearts and minds will be renewed to the degree that we will no longer dwell on the struggles of life. We will rejoice and be glad in all that God creates (Vs 18), because the effects of sin and misery are gone, and God will participate in our joy. Our bodies will be revived and will be primed to enjoy the works of our hands (Vs. 20-23). The relational intimacy we long for will be found in Christ, and all we long for in this world will be fulfilled in Christ at his return.Isaiah 65-66 English Standard Version (ESV)Judgment and Salvation65 I was ready to be sought by those who did not ask for me; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me.I said, “Here I am, here I am,” to a nation that was not called by[a] my name.2 I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people,who walk in a way that is...

The Rescuer King

8/18/2019Pastor Caleb Galloway"The Rescuer King"Isaiah 61 ESVJesus was sent to redeem us so we could enter into the joy of fellowship with him forever. In Isaiah 61, the prophet speaks of the coming Messiah and his mission to bring total salvation to God's people by leading the redeemed in power, bringing good news to the poor and afflicted, binding up the brokenhearted, proclaiming liberty, comforting those who mourn, and proclaiming the year of the Lord's favor. In response, rejoicing and fruit will pour out of our grateful hearts.Isaiah 61 English Standard Version (ESV)The Year of the Lord's Favor61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed meto bring good news to the poor;[a] he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;[b]2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion...

When Christ Reigns Everything Gets Better

8/11/2019Pastor Rusty Milton"When Christ Reigns, Everything Gets Better"Isaiah 60 ESVWhen Christ reigns, everything gets better. In Isaiah 60, the prophet foretells of a time when God brings redemption and justice to the world. During this time, Christ's glory will rest upon the church (Vs. 1-2), draw the nations out of darkness (Vs. 8), and be sufficient to satisfy our every need (Vs. 20). When this time commences, the church will finally be transformed to be like Jesus, and our days of mourning will be ended. All things will be set aright and redeemed.Isaiah 60 English Standard Version (ESV)The Future Glory of Israel60 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples;but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.4 Lift up your eyes all around, and see; they all gath...
