A series through the book of Galatians
In Galatians 6, the Apostle Paul speaks to something that we all face, everyone gets tired in doing good. His encouragement is to keep going, to not give up on doing what God's called us to do. This message is an encouragement to keep going, and how our focus affects our ability to do that.
Paul's reason for writing the book of Galatians was his heart for a community of people, who were being affecting by others distorting the gospel. The focus of Christ was being replaced with a focus on self. This message is about the beautiful affect of the gospel, to move us beyond ourselves to love and care for others.
Just as important as the content of Paul's letter to the Galatians is the structure of it. He spends the first four chapters encouraging our faith, then the last two chapters addressing the good works that show up because of our faith. It's completely backwards from religion, it's the picture of a life of freedom!
We all want our lives to count, to have purpose, meaning and fulfillment. The Apostle Paul makes a big, bold statement to the church in Galatia, that "the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." Instead of exhausting ourselves trying to measure up to God, we can rest in what He's already done for us.
