We’ve all been hurt by someone close to us. Sometimes we’ve done nothing to deserve that kind of experience. But, other times, wounds from a friend are intended to help and heal us, not to hurt us. Paul feels rejected by the Galatians, after developing a deep and meaningful relationship, simply because he is now telling them the truth about their unity in Christ despite their differences as Jews and Gentiles. Can we be the kind of people who are willing to speak (and hear) hard truth wrapped in genuine love?
About this Series:
What does it mean to live in a way that is Truly Free as a follower of Christ? The book of Galatians is one of the earliest biblical letters, written by the apostle Paul to a church that was struggling with how to best understand the grace they had received from Christ. Not only does Paul address what the grace of Christ does for individual people, he also deals with how that grace affects how Christians interact with one another. Through this series, we will be exploring how to live, in community with each other, as Truly Free people under the lordship of Christ.
