Blessed Intervention - Week 2
Clean
December 09, 2018 11:58 AM PST

Kyle Costello continues our Advent sermon series, Blessed Intervention.

When stories become familiar they can become tame or easily dismissed. Maybe no time of
year is that temptation greater for the Jesus follower then at Christmas. We sings songs of
hope, but is there any? This baby Jesus is supposed to mean something, but does he? During
Advent this year we are going to look at the story of Jesus coming to earth and let the Bible tell
us why its so profound. This week we begin by looking at Philippians 2 and asking God to make
real to us again the profound act of his son coming to earth.

Jonny Morrison finishes up our series Age of Rage with Galatians 6. The book of Galatians is a letter to a church about how to be Church in a divided time. For 8 weeks we’ve explored how the gospel unifies hows, how the cross free us, and how the Spirit empowers us to love. In his final word to the Galatians Paul applies all that he’s said to real everyday life. What does it look like to love like Jesus? Carrying the burdens of others especially those who hurt us.

Age of Rage - Week 7

In our series, Age of Rage, Kyle Costello takes a look at Galatians 4:8-9.

At some point in our life we have to be willing to assess how we follow Jesus and in what areas we don’t. Throughout this series we have discussed many ways we can buy into false gospels rather than God’s Gospel, and today it gets more personal. Today we look closely at ways we are still choosing to be enslaved rather than to be free in Christ. Today we look to the Bible not for rules to get us free from slavery, but for the depth of Christ to compel us to leave our enslavement.

In out series, Age of Rage, Jonny Morrison looked at Galatians 3:10-29. Throughout
the series we’ve been exploring the feelings of our cultural moment by asking, "Why does our
world feel the way that it does?" Yesterday we specifically asked why our world seems so
divided and tribal? Tribalism and division are fundamental concerns for Paul in the book of
Galatians because he is watching the young church dived along theological and racial lines. In
Galatians 3 Paul pinpoints the false gospel underneath our tribalism and calls us, by our death
in Christ, to put on Christ and be united in Him. We are to become a cruciform people.

It's not popular to confess that you have been fooled, but has there ever been a time in your life
where you have been? What did that feel like? When Paul writes to the Galatians, he says that
they have been fooled or bewitched into believing a message other than the message of Jesus.

Do we do that? How?

This week Kyle Costello teaches through Galatians 3 and looks specifically at the questions Paul asks the Galatians to help them see how they have trusted in a message other than that of Jesus.

How tempted were you to judge someone today? Even if it was just a dialogue in your head,
how tempted were you or how did you give in to a desire to shame, judge, mock, or blame
someone? Where does that come from in us? How do we address issues when people hurt us
or as Christ Followers when people in our community live outside of the Gospel? These are
important questions and thankfully Jesus and his followers not only dealt with them but gave
us a way to follow as we seek to be people who offer Grace and Truth to the world rather than
shame, blame, and judgement.

Take a closer look at Galatians 2:11-20, and how Paul's rebuke gives us insight into healthy confrontation within the context of being the church in our current cultural moment.

Kyle Costello takes us through the passage.

Age of Rage: Week 3
Clean
September 30, 2018 12:03 PM PDT

We are currently in a series entitled, Age of Rage, exploring the feelings, emotions, and tensions
of our current cultural moment. The goal is to diagnose and address feelings of dissonance,
resentment, anger, loneliness, and anxiety––diagnose and address with the gospel and ask how
the Church can respond. We’ve been rooted in the book of Galatians and the Apostle Paul
doesn’t mince words in his diagnoses of our deepest problems he says we’ve trusted in false
gospels, rival “good news” stories.

What are these rival good news stories about? If you peel back all the layers and get to the very
bottom of it all the rival stories are the “gospel of self;” stories that put the weight of salvation,
fulfillment, and flourishing on our shoulders. On the one hand that is appealing because it
smells like freedom, but the truth is a ““gospel of self”” leads to reduction, exploitation, and
anxiety.

In week 2 of our series Age of Rage, Kyle Costello continues walking through Galatians 1 and exploring the feelings of our current cultural moment.

The world doesn’t politely suggest ways to fulfillment; rather it intensely confronts you with
them. The world says wealth and importance is paramount. It says the powerful are the real
valuable people. If we choose a different way the world mocks us.

So where does that leave the Christ follower? Can we mix the gospel of the world with the
Gospel of Jesus? And what happens if we do? The story of Jesus, like the claims of the world,
is no different in asserting its path to fulfillment powerfully. Jesus doesn’t live, die on the cross,
and be raised from the dead to politely suggest his way is a good one. Jesus' life and words tell
us that his Gospel is an objective truth that is to be believed above and beyond the ways of the
world.

So how do we decide? Are the invitations of the world where we will find our peace and
thriving? What if we feel like we have tried both and both have left us empty? Can we really
trust the message of Jesus? What and how can we uncover the lies or the truth behind
these competing claims? This week we dig deep into Galatians to listen to Jesus, see what he
is doing in the midst of his people, and ask the questions above.
