Identity - Galatians 3:26-4:7


Sermon Summary - In this series, we are mining through the New Testament letters written by the apostles as they obeyed Jesus’s commission and did this work of proclaiming the gospel and making disciples, and starting churches. We want to see— what is the way of Jesus? What does it look like for faith in the gospel to truly change the way we live? What does it look like for the gospel to make us new? In this sermon, we see that if we are going to live the way of Jesus we must understand the new identity we have in Christ. Through faith in Christ, we are given a new identity that is true, an identity that is good, and an identity that works.
