Losing My Religion

Losing My Religion

`We are starting a 6-week series exploring Galatians called “Losing my Religion”. We will be unpacking the sense in which the walk of faith is one of letting go of the “oughts and should” of every kind of personal or corporate rule-keeping and replacing them with the faith and love of God to guide our lives instead. This is the essence of the life of grace that we seek to embrace as a community.

We continue our 6-week series called, Losing My Religion, by exploring Gal 4:8 – 5:15 about Christ being formed in us as children of the promise, free from the slavery to “weak and worthless elementary principles of the world”, embracing the truth that the only thing that counts is “faith working through love”. Our joy can be restored in experiencing transformation as we live this different kind of life in and through God’s Spirit.

We continue our 6-week series called, Losing My Religion, by exploring Galatians 3:23 to 4:7 about what the coming of faith means: people in every station of life are made equal to each other, we are adopted as God’s own children and we become full heirs of all that belongs to our Father. Losing our religious, controlling, rule-keeping, score-keeping approach to life in exchange for this infinite gain is cause for a life of celebration and an eagerness to follow this Jesus who made the way for us to this new mode of living.

We continue our series, Losing My Religion, by exploring Galatians 3:6-22. We see here the vast difference between living under the law, with its rule-keeping and fear of consequences, and living under the God’s promise, where responding to God’s grace becomes the motivation for our behavior. Many of us are reading the whole letter to the Galatians during this series to allow the Gospel content to soak deeply in our thoughts and experience.

Join us in reading the full book of Galatians, a letter from Paul the Apostle to a number of Early Christian communities in Galatia. In this book, Paul establishes the importance of Grace compared to the Law and has lessons for us centuries later as we walk in the truth of the Gospel.

BECAUSE we want our community’s Scriptural diet to be balanced, sometimes with a series of studies that are thematic, alternating with studies that are more ‘expository’, ‘exegetical,’ letting themes come out of Scripture that we might never think of ourselves, here is an outline of a series in Galatians.
I have leaned on N. T. Wright’s booklet, ‘GALATIANS: 10 Studies,’ from his series ‘The Bible for Everyone’…but have shortened it from 10 to 6 installments.
Back in 1980, in Philadelphia, our dear friend and pastor, Jack Miller, said,
“Galatians is not my favorite New Testament letter; it’s confrontational and embarrassing. But it’s my experience, across the years, that if people don’t understand the message of Galatians, the Christian life won’t work for them.”
Because we desire that the Christian life will increasingly ‘work’ for our dear friends at Crossroads The Hague, I’m proposing that we do our best to cook up a feast of deliciously counter-intuitive sermons from Galatians…they didn’t fall from grace into bank-robbery; they fell from grace into religious pride! And may the Spirit guide us as we prepare and share!
