The Gospel of Grace. #13

We have reached Galatians 5 v 1 in our series on Paul's first epistle.

Today we go through this verse word by word; looking at what this means for us today.

What is the liberty and bondage that Paul writes about?

If you've been listening you will know this is of course grace and law!

Listen to the message to find out that our natural position is grace.

No message this week folks as we had an extended time of praise and thanksgiving for the life of Jean Longstaff.

Jean knew the Lord and went to be with Him last Sunday.


Rom 10 : 8 – 11  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.


Jean was one of God’s diamonds; a lady who was joyful in all circumstances.

Pastor Vic received the following email from his son this morning:


Good morning all. Hope you are having a wonderful service this morning remembering a very special woman. I will always remember the first time I met Jean, we clicked immediately and as we spoke it was as if there was no generation gap between us at all. She was hilarious, sharp and witty. I only spoke to Jean twice, but even from such a brief and finite moment it is clear to me that she was a tremendously passionate woman! The last time I saw her I was helping her into a car and just before she pulled away she asked me to sing for her, a song called ‘Loving You’ from a Sondheim musical. I’m very grateful to have met Jean before she passed and look forward to singing with her again when I go!!
Love to you all!!

Jean was a special lady to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and to us all. She will be missed. We give thanks for Jean’s faithfulness to the Lord and to
Moray Grace Fellowship.
Amen.

John 14 : 1 – 4  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 
And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Amen.

The Gospel of Grace. #12

Typology is used throughout the Scriptures to help describe concepts and ideas to us.


In this next part of our journey through Galatians, Paul uses typology to compare law and grace.

He uses Ishmael and Isaac; how they were born, and what happened to them, to explain more to us about law and grace.

Grace is to be embraced while law is to be "kicked out.".

Listen to find out more.

The Gospel of Grace. #11

In the message today, we continue in our journey through Galatians, looking at Paul sharing his concerns about the church in Galatia.


Their initial enthusiasm, and blessings, after receiving the truth, had obviously worn off; the danger of listening to legalists.

Paul tells the church that they have not offended him and that he really wants them to move back under grace.

What Paul says to the Galatians is also important for the church today.

Listen to this message to find out more.

The Gospel of Grace. #10

We have reached message 10 in our travels through the Epistle to the Galatians and, this week, Paul gives us a picture of the danger of legalism in the church today.

In the church in Galatia people had been saved from idolatry through the message of the Gospel, but then were turned to the law, legalism and religion.

This is exactly what we see in the body of Christ today!

Listen to why this process terrified Paul and why we should be aware of this today.
