Galatians 4:21-31 contains more trigger words than a 1970's standup comedy routine.
Pastor Nate Marsh continues in Real or Fake?!, A Study in Galatians, to help us understand the principle behind the harsh words of Paul in the first century Roman Empire. We need to relate to God through a relationship, because robots can only follow their programming.
The Scripture text is from Galatians 4:21-31. This podcast episode is from Sunday morning at Evangel Community Church, Houghton, Michigan, February 28, 2021.
We must discern between real and fake in our world with advanced CGI, artificial intelligence, and competing social and political narratives, each with its own set of facts. The only way to overcome fake news is to confront it with truth. God offers us truth for our good, but Satan is working to undermine that for evil by deceiving us. In this series, we confront the counterfeit, not settling for anything less than a real relationship with the real Jesus that really works!
Do you have a superhero image of Jesus? Is he like an all-powerful alien to you? Pastor Nate kicks off our Christmas Advent series, God with Us, reminding us of Christ's humanity. He relates to us In Weakness & Dependence. The Scripture text is Matthew 4:1-11. This is a podcast of Evangel Church, Houghton, Michigan, on December 3, 2017.
The birth of Jesus is a tangible message that God wants to dwell with humanity. In spite of the messes of our world, God chooses to come, and pursue us, and show us His goodness. In this Christmas Advent series, we look at how Jesus is with us, how He has shared our experience, He knows our weakness and limitations, our fear and dependence. He knows our suffering and pain. Through God’s presence with us, we find hope and courage to follow Him with all we are.
