I would be delighted if you could join us at Bartimaeus Baptist Temple tomorrow for services. We meet at 2:30 so you don’t even have to miss yours. What follows is the intro from my post on the church site.
This Sunday, I want to talk to you from the book of Galatians. It’s not a long book, so I urge you to read it this week. The truth is that we are all law breakers. If God had a police force, we’d all be in danger of being arrested! Not only that, but we’d be convicted and the penalty is death! But instead of sending a Heavenly hit squad, God sent His son, Jesus, to take it for us. The trouble is that we think we know better. We seem to think that if we do everything right, we’ll make the cut. Sometimes we’re so arrogant that we appoint ourselves God’s police force and try to make everyone else follow the law as we see it. Paul has some very harsh words for that kind of attitude. He also has some very encouraging words if we choose to walk with Jesus by His Holy Spirit. Come and let’s explore them together.
