Sunday Review, December 30, 2012

GalatiansSunday, December 30, 2012, ended our study through the Book of Galatians. Paul the apostle gives final instructions by which to live. Those who add something to the very Gospel of Jesus Christ are not preaching a gospel at all. Rather, they are skewing the truth thereby nullifying what it is that Jesus Christ has adequately done for those who believe. He died according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose again according to the Scriptures. Man is saved by faith alone, in Christ alone, by grace alone. And as one button that I saw at a restaurant says, “No ‘ifs, ands, or buts about it, satisfaction guaranteed!'”

Thanks be to God for the great things He has done for us through His Beloved, Son, Jesus Christ. (You can listen to the message by clicking here.)

Sunday evening we continued our study in the Book of Exodus. Moses, in Exodus 4, continues to protest against God’s holy words to him. God has told him what he needs to do and each time God responds to him, he protests and makes excuses one after another. God, at some point in the conversation, begins to burn with anger toward Moses. But something interesting happens: God shows GRACE to Moses! Rather than forcing Moses to speak for Him, God brings Aaron, Moses’ brother, to him to be his mouthpiece. Now that’s GRACE if I have ever seen GRACE! God could have chosen to rid Himself of the one giving lame excuses for protesting against Him. But instead, God made a way for redemption once again. (Unfortunately this message had a recording glitch (it wasn’t recorded at all!!) so it is unavailable!)
