Now let's get started with today's teaching year is Allen right here when he says his word is troubled me all week because Paul is the one who taught us and said blessed and do not curse his bless your enemies how can even be saying this is a really saying just curse people think so. I think what he's saying is like in the Old Testament where an idol was called accursed and if I can do them is don't bring idol and it's an abomination. Accursed thing don't have anything to do with accursed thing, only saying is that that gospel presentation nothing to do with it nothing to do an A- proclaiming it like that. This is very, very strong language is he's mad he is man the way Jesus was mad when he turned over the money changers tables.
Jesus was mad.
The disciples saw Melissa zeal for the Lord of hosts will consume him. They saw a fulfillment of Scripture what he was doing that I turned over the tables, because he was furious while I was at the temple that day.
They were exchanging currency in the court of the Gentiles the Gentiles the non-Jews were not allowed any other place except for that outer court of the Temple. The one place they could pray and they held his money changers tables and the great chaos going on, plus robbing people because you had to.
If you buy a lamp for Passover. Bring your currency and exchange it for temple cards you could invite railcars you buy with temple currency and so they were changing the money in the exchange rate was robbery to the robbing people and preventing the Gentiles, and even being able to commune with God the temple, the symbol of the place where you get to come and commune with God, and they were they were blocking people from the grace of God you block people from the grace of God, you got Jesus mad the whip out that it Paul gets here I would get a whip, you'll see him later in Galatians get mad again why is this is so important when the gospel is mixed with law is what he saying that is accursed thing any other gospel other than the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ when he saying is not just a day diluted form of truth. It is deception and as such it is not just less powerful. It is poisonous when mixed. The gospel isn't just less good. It isn't good at all when mixed and people adopt it. Paul says you haven't just deserted the gospel, verse six, you deserted him who called you is we have been saying it. If if I tell my wife 99 days in a row. I love you, and then on the hundred ASA. I'm not sure if I love you, I might leave you in the 99 days of sale, never late in the one day as I might leave you that one day of conditional love infects and poisons the other 99 1% of law introduces unlimited potential for fear doesn't not. In other words, one day in which you say I might leave you. I don't know if I don't know if you measure up.
Then the other 99 days you'll be still thinking about that one day and Paul saying it's like preaching the gospel like that to build faith in anybody here. If you think that you have Jesus pledging to be circumcised just introduced unlimited potential for fearů I like what you had done whatever it is your daughter well enough done along up and down and righteously enough. How will you ever know when you've done enough.
You will ever know in the accuser Satan, the accuser will use 1% of infection in your gospel in order to accuse you night and day. What Galatians is all about and what is what is filled my heart and what is intoxicating.
The with the gospel right now is to get rid of everything except the purity and simplicity of the gospel that announces that God has done it all for us in Jesus Christ.
How wonderful this gospel is how magnificent we have a gospel so which some powerful is it is more than we is more than we can know but there is a revelation by which we can. It is what Paul says they love that surpasses knowledge, may you know that which passes knowledge talking about a mystery talking about a revelation of something that you can't figure out in your head but it is so wonderful and what we are what we see in this text today and what will continue to see his that the gospel is a gospel of Christ. Paul says it is not a gospel that is authenticated so much by its doctrines, or even by the church authority.
It is a gospel that is authenticated because it is the gospel of Christ.
That's what Paul saying you're abandoning the gospel of Christ is a gospel that is much more than a set of doctrines, I look upon these words in a long time. It is, I found them to be profound.
This is my New Testament exegesis professor Charles Cowles are who taught me. Galatians all those years ago, and I look back at his commentary. I want to reach of these words, the preaching of Christ gospel Charlie said, will inevitably convey God's grace, not an abstract theological. The theoretical fashion but in terms of the particular human situation.
It may include judgment as well as mercy imperative as well as indicative and appropriately so. If arising from or relating to the word that God is for us if there is to be a test to be applied to preaching.
It is this. Does it declare Jesus Christ as the unqualified liberator and as Paul will go on to say in Galatians does this preaching clarify what Christ has freed us for all authentic Christian preaching is proclaiming Christ the liberator and that is liberated us for a magnificent destiny. He continued by saying of the gospel.
It is a divine activity by means of which people are drawn into the realm of God's grace in the gospel and energy is released to change the plight of people and circumstances, it is the power of God for cell patient. In other words, the gospel is not a set of doctrines is a living word energized because it is originated and authenticated by Christ.
And when it is proclaimed miracles take place and Paul had seen miracles take place in the churches into the Galatian Providence. He had seen them come to living faith he had seen them to born in new and the very thought that someone was stealing their joy stealing their confidence stealing their faith and robbing them of the power of the gospel was unbearable to him. So he writes this letter and what is going to say in a thousand different ways is that you need to know that you know that you know there is nothing that you do to make yourself the long it is what God has done that makes you belong and you can count on, and therefore live your life as a child of God. Many and there and all the Turks remember former associate pastor Jim Glasco. We love so much and he has been away for some years crashing down in Wilmington, North Carolina and his daughter Aaron was so one of our children's babysitters and we got to watch Aaron grow up and she watched our children grow and yesterday Erin was married to another dear friend of our church and of our family, Tucker Johnson, Aaron Tucker, were married yesterday and you have to do is no Aaron, she's one-of-a-kind. She is a free spirit, love Jesus all our heart, and Tucker's a free spirit, love Jesus Lloyd's heart and so months ago and when they went to the gym. Erin went to her dad and she said she wanted to have the wedding outdoors and he said why she said because I want that feeling numb. I went out. She said I wanted whimsical and being the Scott that he is. Jim asked Lenny clarify does whimsical mean more expensive or less expensive talent right will have more teaching from today's important series.

Today is the final day were offering the special product. Call us at 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website Pastor Alan.work. Today's teaching now continues here once again is Alan writing. Having officiated the service yesterday. I'll tell you I don't know if it's more or less expensive, but it's quite more disorganized and it was whimsical for Aaron but worrisome for the officiant. This was in Holly Ridge. No, no, it was Shelby say on the outskirts of Holly Ridge, North Carolina.
There's only one stoplight in Holly Ridge and this wasn't in Holly Ridge is out, it's out on a road. It's not on MapQuest or the GPS you can't find it.
You go down a dirt road know it wasn't a dirt road. It was a mile of sand I went on the at the wedding.
I pulled down around I was going to be with the groomsmen hiding around these bushes, bushes, and they had trample out the poison ivy around the area where the wedding was but the poison ivy was rampant over me in the groomsmen in the bushes and so 15. I'm not making this up 15 minutes before were supposed to march through the woods into our place and have the wedding start. Amidst this grove of old oak trees. My car got stuck in the sand in the groomsmen were having to push my car to get it and hundreds of people somehow found their way there and pastor Jim was in his Scottish kilt per request from the whimsical bride and he pulls down in his car wedding is supposed to be starting in about 10 minutes and he says looks like going to be a little late. People are up there signing mementos in the doing the thumbprint artwork thing and I didn't know what that was. I said that's fine.
Do you have any idea when it would when it will start groomsmen are behind the bushes. I caught up with them a little later after that there was a director of the wedding, but she was hiding from me every time I try to find her. She was hiding. She didn't want to see me in the ask another question because it saves nobody told me anything and the so I sent Jim a little later I said any any idea now is that I will try to get a move and he said but you know the good thing is is not worrying. Erin he said you know what she said to me a little while ago because he had been worrying about the 50% chance of thunderstorms 50% chance going to weather.com and no rain and in no place to go is if the bushes were going to help us and he said you know what Aaron he said this 10 minutes before the wedding to no Aaron just said massive what said she thought it might be nice to have a little rain. I love you Jim to Greeley right now the name of Jesus.
No rain not agree with that. I'm not telling the half of it finally started wedding but beforehand I thought there's to be some prelude music playing.
Nobody told me anything. I found the wedding director as to what musics must be going to said nobody told me anything so I went to the guy that was going to sing a couple said are you supposed be saying and now I said I don't know nobody told me anything, so maybe you could just place them instrumental is that I don't have any instrument I got to song Saul went to the bagpipe Bresson are you supposed to be planning said nobody told me so that I got a limit the repertoire and I might get tired out. So I found another guy that was going to some the worst, but having to play the guitar will busily start playing. And finally we got our places marched through and was there and the bridesmaids came in and grew dark in the wind was swirling from behind me and across the bride and the groom the way it wind blows before the storm comes, that kinda win brings coolness with it, and yet worry with it and blowing from back of my head across bride and the groom and but the wedding party took their place and here came Aaron and she was like an angel and she she was unconcerned about the storm clouds that were brewing and she looked at her groom. That was weeping for joy and I began to speak to them in my little message from the words of Peter husbands to live with their wives in an understanding way because you are heirs of the grace of life together. I said this is a word that is beautiful in the Greek it is one word joint heirs, your heirs together of incredible riches, and I began to talk to them about their inheritance in Christ and how we blessed them because they're not orphans but heirs as I was doing so, the wind just increased and it was blowing through Aaron's hair quite whimsically and she was beaming. She was beautiful and while I was preaching the the pitter patter of rain I felt that on the back of my neck and I thought here comes the rain water we going to do. There's nowhere to hide. There's nowhere to go. The rain started coming. It rained lightly for about 75 seconds and then it dissipated and when it dissipated. I felt a beam of sunlight back behind us and I suddenly quit worrying about anything because it was as if the Holy Spirit told me quit worrying Alan I'm given my daughter everything she wind blew her veil off of her face and her daddy held it on the front pew over his kilt. I announced I'm pleased to present to you Mr. Mrs. Tucker Johnson and the bagpiper played and people shouted louder than you ever heard them shout at a wedding.
They had picked up on the freedom as the wind had been blowing so had the presence of the Holy Spirit. I looked at that father Jim with those tears in his eyes that kilt phones have failed. He was still holding. She watched his daughter pranced down, recessing out to the woods thought that little girl is getting this kind of wedding because she asked her daddy what one thing that she had done to pay him for that.
He just did it because as little girl and I just thought there that moment, and I smiled as I felt the smile of God reminding me. You could never pay a price dear enough to earn the father's favor, but God himself did in Jesus Christ. What I'm saying is if you earthly fathers which show favor to your children. Just because they're your children, how much more your father in heaven who died for Alan.

Love Christ there is no good news like we have in our gospel and maybe this is the good news the gospel message. That's unlike anything that someone has heard quite like this before.
What would you say that person right now where they are open up your heart and sometimes are just the beginning when you say, I'm not sure if I can even believe the gospel is that good, but I want to believe it and maybe for somebody listening to hear that story of a father in the great links it will go just to show favor to us his daughter is something inside of you longs for an experience of that kind of luck and I think that's the beginning point Daniel. I think sometimes when you haven't heard the message of the gospel and all of its beauty and purity and power of sometimes it begins like this your ears spiritual ears perk up and you begin to notice and you begin to me listen is almost like hearing a song that you really like and you want to hear it again and again and again and so I think that's our prayers.
We are going through Galatians is that the beautiful song of the gospel beautiful story of God's love Majesty purity of this gospel, because everything within you to stand up and pay attention because it's true it's real God's grace set only caught part of today's teaching.
