“How successful have you been at eradicating sin from your life?”
I know that’s a loaded question but my hope is that you will answer it honestly and recognize that while some sins may cease or diminish, there are still a host of sins in our lives that simply won’t go away. What are we to do with those?
In today’s post and podcast we continue our exploration of Galatians when Paul opens up what I call the junk drawer of naughtiness. His list of interpersonal transgressions is very long and it’s likely some of your besetting sins are on it. Join me now as we learn to see beyond the battle of flesh and the spirit and gain a new way to understand and live with these two powerful forces within us.
“Do you have an area of your life that no matter how hard you try, lasting change seems impossible?
In today’s podcast and post, we continue our study of Galatians and explore how internal freedom is entangled in the captivity of our flesh. We’re camping out on this topic for a few weeks because so many of us work from a flawed understanding and thus we fail not despite our best efforts but because of them.
Join me now as we reframe the battle of the flesh vs the spirit into a dance of necessary tension. This not only allows us to live from a place of inner freedom but it gives us the lens to see beyond everything.
“Are you aware of your shadow self? Do you understand your dark side?”
In today’s podcast and post, we continue our study of Galatians and explore how internal freedom is entangled with the captivity of our flesh. In other words there is a constant dance between shadow and light, flesh and spirit.
Join me now as we learn about our dark side, and free ourselves from the old binary framework of good versus evil. We’ll explore the only possible reason our shadow can exist in the first place and why that allows us to see beyond everything.
“Are you free to live your live your life how you want to? If so, are you doing it?”
Today our study in the book of Galatians focuses on the apex of this book where Paul explains that freedom is the whole point of everything. The Gospel is the power that frees us from the prisons of either overdoing or underdoing everything.
Join me now as we learn to see that our captivity is not imposed upon us by an external force as much as it is our unwillingness to simply walk right out into the freedom we’ve already inherited.
How does life change for you if you were the heir to billions? Wouldn’t that reality provide a safety net for you? What would living be like to have the certainty and freedom to go or do anything your heart desired? It might surprise you to know that that experience is possible for every single person.
In today’s podcast, we continue our exploration of Galatians and learn that each of us is an heir to a divine inheritance. Join me know as we see beyond how this is possible and learn what it means to live freely as an heir.
“Have you ever met someone who has caved under pressure?”
We like to think of ourselves as free and autonomous people. We like to think that our opinions are our own, and that we have the courage and strength to speak truth to power. But in reality, most people will cave under pressure. If your boss, or someone you hold in high regard challenges you, are you really willing to face the consequences of a certain conflict?
In today’s podcast and post we will explore Paul’s question to the church in Galatia because he is has noticed that they have tossed out their freedom for the sake of keeping appearances or keeping certain people happy. Join me now as we learn why it is better to defend your freedom even in the face of conflict than to cave in for the sake of being nice.
