What Everyone Desires

Passage: Galatians 5:22-23
There is a strange commonality to our desires. Old and young; rich and poor; religious or not… There are just a few things every person wants… and just a few things that seem to allude many. In this message from the Bible book of Galatians we will see those basic desires listed, but more than that, we will learn the surprising truth of how they can be obtained.
What if we knew how to exchange depression for joy and stress for peace? God’s word speaks with clarity and relevancy on these important life issues. That is the focus of this message.
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.
