  Highlights Edition!
Sermon Recap from 8/15/21

Title: If Promise, Why the Law?
Passage: Galatians 3:15-25
1. Are you seeking justification or sanctification through the Mosaic law?
2. Do you do other works to merit salvation?
3. Do you “live by the list”?  “Living by the list is when you determine how much God loves you any particular day of the week by how well you keep a list of rules you think makes you a good Christian.” [Blake Jennings]

Let us live by faith in the promise of Christ and not by the list!
