  • Modern-Day Legalism (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Sep 23, 2020
    based on 2 ratings

    We have seen how legalism in Paul’s day added works to salvation, but that is largely not what modern-day legalism is in the church now. Legalism for us applies in the area of how we perceive our sanctification and how we portray our spirituality to others.

    INTRO: I need to explain what is going on with the next couple of messages. We have dipped our toe in the water of legalism as it has been addressed in the book of Galatians so far. I am going to take a couple messages and jump into the entire pool of what legalism looks like for us today. We more

  • Modern-Day Legalism (Part 2) Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Sep 23, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Legalism is potentially such a damaging, deceitful, and depressing way to view the Christian life.

    INTRO: I’ve tried to be very clear and practical at each point in this topic about what legalism is, what it does, and what it looks like. We spent the last message covering the statements a legalist might say, the specifics of legalism as far as the actual fundamental definitions of this way of more

  • Slaves To Sons Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Aug 26, 2020

    To be a slave your entire life is devastating and discouraging. To be under the guidance of a schoolmaster is frustrating and limiting. But to be a son or daughter, to have a Heavenly Father, that’s a relationship you can enjoy for eternity.

  • The Interrogation Of Faith Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Aug 19, 2020

    As Paul continues to defend doctrine, he asks the Galatians 6 rapid-fire questions in 5 verses.

    INTRO: These next two chapters are going to be a little complicated. The 60 verses that make up Galatians 3 and 4 are said to be some of the strongest writing that Paul ever penned. His opponents, the Judaizers, were using every possible means to enslave the believers in Galatia, and Paul was not more

  • The Importance Of Faith Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Aug 19, 2020

    Paul anticipates the Judaizers next objection since they were huge fans of the law of Moses. In general, they recognized the importance of the Abrahamic covenant, but they gave priority to the Mosaic covenant. This led them to emphasize law over faith.

    INTRO: We have seen the interrogation of faith and the illustration of faith and today we’ll see the importance of faith. Next week is the identity of faith. What Paul has been hammering home in Galatians is that we are saved by faith and not by works. This is the distinguishing hallmark of more

  • The Identity Of Faith Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Aug 19, 2020

    There is an identity crisis in our country. I believe that our racial problems are a result of an unbiblical view of our identity. This passage has long been used to rebuke a racist and bigoted view of the gospel.

    INTRO: Galatians 3 has been a history lesson through the Old Testament. One of the more complicated chapters of Paul’s writings, it’s been a difficult hike, but like many hard journeys, there is a rewarding view at the end. We have climbed the mountain peaks of Abraham and Moses and have seen more

  • The Illustration Of Faith Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Aug 19, 2020

    As an example of salvation by faith and not works, Paul uses the Jews own patriarch Abraham against them!

  • Reactions To Famine Time Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Mar 5, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    God is beginning to break the hearts and stir the consciences of Jacob and his sons. While still in the middle of the famine, we can learn much from their wrong reactions to the famine and the sin that was a very real part of their lives

    INTRO: Last week, we saw that God was using the worldwide famine to awaken the seared consciences of the sons of Jacob. They expressed a certain amount of remorse at what they had done to Joseph 20 years earlier, and started to wonder if God was punishing them for the dirty deed done so long ago. more

  • The Problem Of Passive Parenting Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Mar 5, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    The story of Joseph stands out even more when you realize the kind of home he was raised in. He had a very passive father in Jacob.

    INTRO: “I don’t get mad, I get even” isn’t merely a harmless bumper sticker that makes us all smile. It is a strong statement of painful reality among our culture. How else can we explain the abundance of lawsuits, the short fuses of drivers, or the explosive and sometimes more

  • Paths That Lead To Pits Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Mar 5, 2013

    Usually, we are in pits of our own making. We find ourselves in a hole that we have fashioned for ourselves. What are the paths that lead to pits?

    INTRO: At the end of this chapter, Joseph is going to find himself in a pit. A literal, dark and lonely pit. At the same time, the brothers are going to find themselves in a pit as well. But theirs will be a pit of their own making – a spiritual pit, one that is brought on by their own more

  • Developing A Dream Of Distinction Series

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Mar 5, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    You must remember four things about your dream of usefulness for God.

  • Women And Worship

    Contributed by Greg Powell on Apr 17, 2012
    based on 1 rating

    An expository message on the difficult passage of head coverings in 1 Corinthians and its implications toward submission.

    INTRO: I will tell you unashamedly that I am not scared to preach on this passage. Not scared, I am terrified! I want to handle the Word of God rightly and accurately. There is a big, gigantic “HUH?” that you could right over the top of these verses in your Bible. You read this more
