The Gospel and the Church
 

The Gospel in Galatians - TELUGU / September 18, 2017

The indication of God’s presence among His people is in the Christlike spirit manifest within the church. It can be seen in the way forgiveness and restoration are extended to those who err, in how they help each other in trials, and in intentional acts of kindness shared not only among themselves but also with unbelievers.

 
Paul’s Pastoral Appeal
 

The Gospel in Galatians - TELUGU / August 21, 2017

Having made a number of detailed and theologically sophisticated arguments, Paul now makes a more personal and emotional appeal to the Galatians. He begs them to listen to his counsel, reminding them of the positive relationship they once shared and of the genuine love and concern he has for them as their spiritual parent.

 
The Road to Faith
 

The Gospel in Galatians - TELUGU / August 07, 2017

The law was given to point sinners to their need of Christ. As a custodian, it provides instruction about God and protection from evil. But like a disciplinarian, it also points out our sinfulness and brings condemnation. Christ frees us from the law’s condemnation and writes His law upon our hearts.

 
Justification by Faith Alone
 

The Gospel in Galatians - TELUGU / July 17, 2017

Peter’s behavior in Antioch suggested that ex-pagans could not be true Christians unless they were first circumcised. Paul pointed out the fallacy of such thinking. God cannot pronounce anyone righteous on the basis of that person’s behavior, for even the best humans are not perfect. It is only by accepting what God has done for us in Christ that we sinners can be justified in His sight.

 
Paul: Apostle to the Gentiles
 

The Gospel in Galatians - TELUGU / June 26, 2017

Saul’s encounter with the risen Jesus on the Damascus road was the defining moment in his life and in the history of the early church. With it, God changed the one-time persecutor of the church and made him His chosen apostle to bring the gospel to the Gentile world. Paul’s inclusion of Gentiles in the church by faith alone, however, proved a difficult concept for some within the church to accept a powerful example of how preconceptions and prejudice can hinder our mission.
