Stay True: "Check Your Sources"
The book of Galatians is one of the clearest presentations of the Gospel in the scriptures. God redeems people irregardless of their “lostness” through trust in Jesus Christ. Mercy undeserved; matchless favor for the broken. This is the glory of God’s grace. Galatians is both a letter to a church and a glimpse into their story. A people who’ve received Christ’s grace are at a crossroads in their own trust in Him. Though they’ve discovered redemption in Jesus, they face the pressure to conform to someone else’s expression of that faith. And the Apostle Paul writes to them to stay true to what the Gospel is all about: Hope comes from trusting Jesus, not what we can earn by performance or achievement. Salvation is a gift. And this gift is meant to change us. This series is all about staying true. And we are going to dive into this book in the effort to draw from it’s depths in order to stay true to Jesus.

Measurement follows grace; grace doesn't follow measurement.

Jesus is not sill making up his mind about you.

You are loved. Period!

Jesus is the SOURCE, the SUBSTANCE, and the SCOPE of the Gospel.

The Gospel should point us to the problem within ourselves and then point us to the only solution, which is outside of ourselves – Jesus.

"No ritual and no commandment and no good deed of any kind can ever be a prerequisite for salvation, because the grace offered to us by Jesus is our only hope.” Craig L. Blomberg
The dominant voice of the gospel is Jesus. Anytime there is a voice louder than His within the Gospel, it is not the Gospel.

We can tend to have "measurement" issues:
Scale measures my weight not my worth.
Tape-measure reveals my height not my identity.
My odometer tracks my distance traveled not the progress I’ve made.
A thermometer lets me know the temperature I live in not the passion I hold.
A clock tells me the time I live in not the opportunities I’m losing.
A GPS can show me my present location but doesn’t dictate my destiny.
Your timecard may track your hours worked not the quality of your life.
The “likes” on your Social Media tells you who “likes” your post not who likes you.
Whenever we give in to arrogance or insecurity it’s because we have lost sight of our gospel identity.
