Sermon Outline for Sunday, July 20, 2014 Fellowship Baptist Church Pastor R. Rubino
Testosterone Gospel Part 6 â€ś1517 All Over Again!â€ť: Exposition of Galatians 2:11-20
1) Paul without hesitation strongly confronts Peter and GETS IN HIS FACE! Christians are called to correct ANYONE who perverts the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ. Those who hold to a fake Gospel have a fake Jesus. The Church has been infected by the cultureâ€™s idea of tolerance and we are dying. (Galatians 2:11-14; 2 Samuel 12:1-6; Psalm 32) 2) Christians are justified before God because of the work of Jesus Christ, not our own. There are no works we can perform to justify ourselves in Godâ€™s court for our sin. We are justified by God in order to do righteous works. A living faith comes before works of righteousness. James mentions our father Abraham and his living faith, which was self-evident after he offered Isaac as a sacrifice. (Galatians 2:15,16; James 2:18-26) 3) When we try to add to Godâ€™s Grace, we hamper its effectiveness. If men were able to justify themselves through a religious system of works, the World did not need a Messiah! Every other religion besides Biblical Christianity was born in the (Galatians 2:17-21; Genesis 3:7; 21-24).
