    The One Gospel (Galatians 1:1-10)
    Series: Galatians
    Paul begins his letter to the churches in Galatia out of dire need.  Serious error has crept into the church and is leading the people astray.  There is only one Gospel that can save. It is an exclusive Gospel and Christ, not man, is the foundation.  When we seek a gospel that places authority in man’s hands we are headed for disaster.  Do we see this in the church today?  Where are the dangers in our own lives, when we are more concerned about pleasing men than God?  Do we believe that there is one Gospel, but act as if there are other things that save?

    Series: Zechariah
    God’s plan goes far beyond the priesthood of Joshua and the Nation of Israel.  Zechariah introduces, “The Branch,” of whom Joshua is just a symbol.  Though Israel must start small, it is “the faith of a mustard seed” that produces a large tree.  The Kingdom of God encompasses the whole earth and features as its main feature, a wonderfully merciful God who plucks his people from the fire and washes them clean.
