Preparing for the Lord's Day Why is Paul so upset in his letter to the Galatians? It was a common form, in first-century letter writing, to offer some type of thanksgiving or compliment to the recipient. If one investigates Paul's other epistles, he will find that Paul follows this convention. However, in Galatians, he skips with the initial gestures and goes right to his...

Preparing for the Lord's Day No Other Gospel: A Study of Galatians Everyone is born a legalist. That is to say, everyone has a natural tendency to view acceptance and reward as the just fruits of our proper action. This instinct can be useful and helpful in this world.

Preparing for the Lord's Day This Advent season we have focused our attention on the theme of waiting. We have seen that we are to wait with hope and with peace, and this week we will look at how we are to wait with joy. Psalm 97 begins and ends with a command to rejoice.

Preparing for the Lord's Day In the sermon for this week, I make an important distinction between waiting for peace and waiting with peace.
