You could sum up the entire book of Galatians with one word: Grace. If you have placed your faith in Christ, you have been saved by grace through faith! While many are caught up in trying to earn their Salvation, God reveals his heart for us and reminds us to stop trying to earn his love and start learning to accept it. It’s time to live free in the fullness of life given to us!
Samuel Johnson once wrote that "People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed." In Galatians 3, Paul is trying to remind his readers what they already had been instructed: God wants us to live by faith. In this message, Pastor Carlos reminds us that if we are not careful, we can easily fall prey to other voices preaching a different gospel. Even at our best we are desperate for God. We are not slaves to earning God's favor. We have been set free by grace.
When C.S. Lewis was asked what belief was unique to the Christian faith, his response was "Oh, that's easy. It's grace."

Join us for this replay as Pastor Skyler walks through Galatians 1, sharing what grace really is and why we so easily miss the profound importance of grace in our daily life.
