Sermons about Galatians 3
Our adoption by our heavenly Father rescues us from our slavery, gives us a new identity and inheritance, and spurs us to adopt other children into our families.
What has shaped you up to this point in your life? It is a valid question and worthy of receiving some effort in order to be answered. However, a far better question is out there. By what do you desire to be shaped? At first glance the two questions may seem similar...but in reality they are miles apart. The first, “What has shaped you?” can lead to a victim mentality (obviously it does not have to do so). The second, “By what do you desire to be shaped?” starts the process of being an overcomer (a process which lasts a lifetime). Historically The Church has relied on "Baptism" and the "Eucharist" for identity and continual life-shaping. In our culture these two sacraments (if I dare use that term...) have fallen on hard times. What can help rescue them? Well, the Lord's Supper will be the focus in a few weeks - so it will have to wait. This week we focused on the issue of "baptism". Just remember, in keeping with this series (Shaped By Worship), by focus I mean looking at the portrait and not the brushstrokes. So, what is a vital piece of the portrait of worship in relation to baptism? The answer is found in one word - Kingdom.
