Tomorrow starts the beginning of the Advent season. I’ve decided to go though Galatians during the season and would love you to join me.
I know what you are thinking…Galatians, for Advent?
Yes! Galatians, for Advent.
John MacArthur refers to Galatians as the Freedom Charter, the Magna Carta of Christian liberty. Martin Luther, the initiator of the Reformation, said Galatians was “his” epistle, that he was wed to it. It was the heart of the Reformation; the Gospel message that sinners ae saved, not by works of the law, but by grace alone through faith alone because of what Christ alone did.
And I believe we need a little freedom in our lives. We need to let some things go.
We become enslaved again when we try to add anything to Jesus.
As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, a study of His sufficiency alone feels right.
I’ve included a calendar below with verses to read, ponder, and study each weekday during the three weeks of Advent.
I’ll post some thoughts here based on each day’s reading and I would love your thoughts too. The most incredible thing about the Bible is how it speaks to us differently in different seasons of our life. I would love to hear how God is speaking to you through these truths.
I hope you’ll join me as we anticipate the coming of our Savior and remind ourselves of the freedom He came to bring us.
