Pigs in the Blanket

Passage: Galatians 2:11-3:3
Jesus said, “Come to me, all who are burdened, and I will give you rest.” So, why does my spiritual life feel like I’m running uphill? Why does there seem to be more frustration than rest? Perhaps we are making the same mistake some Christians in the early church made.
In this message, we will continue our study of the Bible book of Galatians and learn how even the church leaders struggled to get one of the most critical parts of the good news right. We will learn the true elements of the gospel that allow us to truly rest in Christ.
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.
