This coming Sunday will be my last sermon in the 2017 Galatians series at Crestview Bible Church. On April 23, we began this journey in Galatians 1:1 and this coming Sunday, 22 sermons later, we’ll explore Galatians 6:17-18. We’ve been hit with a category 5 Gospel bomb in this book. And, I’m hoping the effect of it upon our lives is long-reaching. I look forward to seeing you at Crestview this Sunday.
Hopefully, tomorrow at Crestview, when we gather for Sun AM Worship (at 10:15), we’ll be learning the song Lamb of God. If you get some time, give this a listen, so you can be familiar with it:
You came from heaven’s throne
Acquainted with our sorrow
To trade the debt we owe
Your suff’ring for our freedom
The Lamb of God in my place
Your blood poured out my sin erased
It was my death You died I am raised to life
Hallelujah the Lamb of God
My name upon Your heart
My shame upon Your shoulders
The pow’r of sin undone
The cross for my salvation
There is no greater love
There is no greater love
The Savior lifted up
There is no greater love

What a great thought for Friday! This coming Sunday, we’ll be looking at Galatians 6:11-16 with the brilliant focus we see in Galatians 6:14 – “Far be it from me to boast, except in the Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world.” Today, what’s your boast? Where do you put your confidence?
May it ever and always be the case that you boast in Jesus.
I’m amazed at how often we (as the church) forget to be about the most basic of things. We’ve been given clear work to do until the Lord returns. Well, this upcoming season will be encouraging to Crestview as Luke will be teaching the book of Acts. This course is subtitled, “The Certainty of the Church’s Commission.” Luke will use his expertise and wisdom to help connect us back to God’s heart for us as a people. Plan to join us, starting this Sunday, September 10, at 9AM.
This coming Sunday we’ll be digging into Galatians 5:1-6, exploring the freedom we have in Jesus. We will also be wrapping up a year of Tide Travelers in the children’s Sunday School opening time. Each month, we do a lesson related to God’s global vision to help instill His heart in our children. I discussed this on a webinar I did with Sixteen:Fifteen last year. So, plan to join us this coming Sunday.
It’s been a busy week, with some traveling and planning happening in my life. But, I’m looking forward to Sunday morning at Crestview. Our service begins at 10:15AM. We’ll continue our journey through the book of Galatians. For a few weeks, we’ve been hearing Paul’s heart for his readers. This week, Paul will go back to the Old Testament. He will use the the story of Abraham’s two sons to teach us about being right with God.
If you’re able, go back and read Genesis 15-18. This passage highlights the promises made by God to Abraham. Look for how the story teaches about his two sons. For my sermon, we’ll be in Galatians 4:21-31. I hope it’s an encouraging weekend for you. I hope it causes you to marvel at God’s work to save you. Hope to see you this Sunday.
We have many pieces moving this coming Sunday at Crestview Bible Church.
In Sunday School (starts at 9AM), we’re starting a new book in the First Principles of Family Life: Passing On Your Beliefs. David Lansdowne will be leading this book, which will run through Labor Day weekend.
In Corporate Worship (starts at 10:15AM), I’ll be preaching Galatians 4:12-20. This passage helps show Paul’s heart for his readers, especially that big aim of Christ being formed in them. Pray that God works through His Word.
Finally, we’ll be learning a new song, Not In Me.
Plan to join us.
We have a lot of things happening this holiday weekend at Crestview.
We start a new adult Sunday School unit on marriage, using BILD International’s First Principles book Enjoying Your Relationship. Tomorrow’s lesson explores Titus 1:10-16 and how the struggles on the island of Crete relate to our current struggles about what to think and believe about marriage. Ron Rhoades will be leading this book and we hope it’s fruitful in the lives of people.
We also learn a new song for July entitled Great Are You, Lord.
Finally, I’ll be preaching Galatians 3:15-22 in a sermon called Law and Promises. The word “promise” shows up many times in this section of Scripture. There’s something God wants us to understand about how He makes promises and what it means for us. So, we’ll be exploring how we can have more confidence in God and His promises. I hope this sermon encourages you all. Looking forward to seeing you as we gather…

As I write, we’re very close to wrapping up our 2017 Vacation Bible School. We’ve had an amazing week with many people serving, looking beyond themselves, and working for the service of others. We are planning on gathering for worship this coming Sunday.
At 9AM, Luke will be giving a formal report of some of the work God’s been up to in India. Our children will be exploring God’s global work during Tide Travelers.
At 10:15AM, we’ll have corporate worship, taking the Lord’s Supper together. Vivek will be preaching Galatians 3:10-14 and helping give us assurance from God’s Word.
We’ll enjoy a Noon Meal together and then have some prayer time for our India connections.
I hope you’ll join us this coming Sunday, 6/25.
