Sunday Review 07.16.17

In case you weren't able to be with us for our time together yesterday, here's what you missed:

Worship Gatherings

  • Pastor Rob continued our study of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. As we looked at the fruit of faithfulness we saw that God is consistently faithful in His dealings with humanity (Lam. 3:21-26). His faithfulness is demonstrated toward His people in a variety of ways: in dealing with our sin (1 John 1:9), in aiding us when we are tempted (1 Cor. 10:13), in bringing about our spiritual development (1 Thess. 5:23-24), and in guarding us against the schemes of Satan (2 Thess. 3:1-3). We also saw that God's faithfulness must be displayed in our relationships: in the workplace (Titus 2:9-10), in the home (Eph. 5:22-6:4), in the church (Eph. 4:16), and ultimately to our God (1 Cor. 4:1-5). This demonstration of faithulness in our lives is only possible as we submit to the Holy Spirit's control (Eph. 5:18).

The Gospel Project

  • We looked at the purpose of God's law as communicated in Moses' farewell address. We saw that God's law was given for our good (Deut. 10:12-22), and that it requires perfection (Deut. 11:1). We also saw that God's law promises either a blessing for obedience, or a curse for disobedience (Deut. 11:26-28). But we noted that Christ, although He had perfectly obeyed all of God's laws, received the curse that we deserve (Gal. 3:13) so that we could receive the blessing that He had earned (2 Cor. 5:21).
