Galatians 1:1-5 English Standard Version (ESV)
1 Paul, an apostle—not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— 2 and all the brothers who are with me,
To the churches of Galatia:
3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Please excuse the technical difficulties during the recording of this sermon. We chose to post this sermon because we felt that the message is the most important part of the sermon.
SUGGESTED READING FROM PASTOR BILL WALKER: The Gospel Comes With Housekeys – by Rosaria Butterfield
1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
4 though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; 6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.
3 Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. 4 And falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” 5 And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:19-20
19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

OPEN YOUR BIBLE TO ACTS 13 & 14 AND FOLLOW ALONG
13 You know it was because of a bodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first,
7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
12 I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!
