Fleeing the Presence (Jonah 1:1-6)
Series: (All)
This week Pastor Derek begins our series through the book of Jonah. Jonah is one of the most unique stories in the Bible. Jonah, prophet of Israel is not only seen as a literal story, but also one that prefigures Israel's relation to the rest of the ancient world, and at certain points, a foreshadowing of the ultimate salvation found in Christ. Here at the beginning, Jonah finds himself at odds with the mission he's been given. As Jonah foolishly tries to flee God, we are brought face to face with the foolishness of our own attempts to flee when we are asked to be obedient.

    The War Inside (Galatians 5:15-26)
    Series: GALATIANS
    Are there areas in your life you know you aren’t very fruitful?  Paul says it is because you may be relying on your own strength to grow fruit rather than the Holy Spirit.  As New Testament believers, the Church has an unbelievable privilege of being filled with the very Spirit of God.  How do we rely on His power and not our own?

    Freedom to Love (Galatians 5:2-14)
    Series: GALATIANS
    Paul outlines Christian freedom.  But is it how most people define freedom today?  In very strong language, Paul rebukes the hollow teachings of the Judaizers and urges the Christians in Galatia to recognize that the only thing that matters is faith expressing itself through love.

    Two Covenants (Galatians 4:21-5:1)
    Series: GALATIANS
    Paul uses Abraham as an illustration again.  This time, the focus is on the two sons born to him.  Paul tells his readers that these two sons are a type and shadow of the two covenants that God would make with His people.  How do these two covenants relate to one another, and how do they affect us today?

    Sowing Division (Galatians 4:1-20)
    Series: GALATIANS
    We get a vivid look at the heart of Paul for his spiritual children in Galatia. It is as if he is watching his only child walk away from the peace and security of home, into a lie that will lead to their certain demise.  This plea illustrates how we should be caring for our brothers and sisters in Christ.  We should be actively involved in both being discipled, and discipling others.  Our hearts should earnestly seek to love and care for one another.

    The Unity of Law and Faith (Galatians 3:15-4:7)
    Series: GALATIANS
    Last time, the dividing line between the Law and Faith was made clear.  But if all that saves is faith, why give the Law in the first place?  Paul answers the question through the story of Abraham. Detailing the usefulness of the Law in its ability to point to the sinfulness of human hearts.  It is only after understanding the deep depravity of man, that one can appreciate the rescue provided by Jesus.  If a slave were unaware that he was a slave, was suddenly freed, would he ever really appreciate his freedom? And this freedom results in equality among all the people of God. His salvation comes to all people groups in the world.

    Faith’s Rebuke (Galatians 2:11-21)
    Series: GALATIANS
    Having been made aware of the foolishness of trying to save himself through the law, Paul is zealous for the Church to rely on the finished work of Christ; not that of man.  He even finds himself in a position in which he must publicly confront Peter for his hypocrisy. As Christians, we are often placed in positions in which, for the sake of the clear gospel, we must refute error.  How equipped are we to do this?  De we recognize error when we see it?  Are we bold enough to stand up for it?
