How to Be a Catalyst for Glory
February 09, 2020 | Noel Dear
Passage: Galatians 2:13-21
We all have sins, failures, hardships, and tragedies in our lives. And it is easy to look at these as things as black marks or unfair circumstances that take away from life. But, because of the gospel, these can also be catalysts for the glory of God.
In this message we will see how this was true in the life of the apostle Paul and it can be true in our lives as well.
The Christian life begins with such a feeling of forgiveness and grace, but after a short time, many are right back under the familiar guilt and condemnation they felt before they knew Christ. As a result, some walk away from the Lord. Because they believe they cannot live up to the new standard, many quit the faith.
Well, there is good news for you if that is where you are! The whole book of Galatians was written to provide both a course correction and the fullness of peace to all of us who are struggling to live lives perfectly in line with the righteous standard of God.
