“... Because of false brothers secretly brought in-who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery-”  Galatians 2:4

Dear Via Family,

The freedom that we have in Christ is beautiful. Some choose to live in constant striving to be right in God’s sight by their right living. Right living is good, but we are made righteous by Jesus. We obey in sincere gratitude for the free gift of salvation and love for our Lord. We are secure in Jesus!  The goal of our lives is to live without fear, redeemed by a God who called us by name and declares for time and eternity that we are His. There is such freedom in the Good News that we have received.

This Sunday

This week our text will be Galatians 2:1-10. I love allowing the power of a book of the Bible to impact us together - the Holy Spirit is transforming us! May our hearts be rewired to live out the implications of the gospel!
