Be Free: One in Christ

November 11, 2014 | Chris Payne

This past Sunday at New Charlotte Church, we continued the Be Free series with a message from Galatians 3:23-29.
The heart of this message is found in verse 26.

Galatians 3:26: “In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.”
This synopsis of the Christian faith stands alone in the pantheon of other world religions.
Christianity is more than forgiveness, morality, rules, devotion…at its core, it’s about sonship.

Through faith, we have become “sons” of God.
We are in the primary family position. Positioned for the promises and inheritance of our father.

Every relationship begins to order itself, rightly, out of our primary relationship with God.
Galatians 3:27-29 puts all of these relationships in context.

v. 27- Our relationship with God.
v. 28- Our relationship with other Christians
v. 29- Our relationship with God’s story (past and future)

These relationships only makes sense in light of Galatians 3:26.
“You are all sons of God.”

Go here to listen to my full sermon on Galatians 3:23-29.
