Sermons on Crucifixion
God does not want a better you. He wants a new you. For the unbeliever, new life is available. For the believer, restoration is possible.
The churches in Galatia were no longer looking like the church it was created to be. You can almost here Paul saying “how did you go from being redeemed through Christ, believing in Him and reflecting Him, to relying on yourselves, trying to do things your own way?”
We each have a past. We are here in the moment. What will your future look like? I can guarantee you this, with Christ, you do not have to face it alone and with Christ, it will be the fullest life possible. And with Christ, it will be an eternal life, one spent in relationship with Him.
Jesus breaks down barriers. Is there something that is hindering our fruitfulness in Christ — something that keeps us from seeing Him and showing Him?
Since it’s inception, the church has never been about bringing people to a place, it’s been about bringing people to a person and that person is Jesus Christ and Him alone.

Our life would be totally and fully imprisoned by Satan and we would experience the ultimate wrath of God. Thankfully there is a BUT GOD!
