Inner trouble

Yesterday, we looked at how Nehemiah confronted the issue of great opposition with prayer, strategy, and steadfastness.

Jesus the logos

To Israelites of Old Testament times, God’s word was more than something written down or spoken out. It was something active so that when God expressed His will, that will be carried out.

The reason given, the only satisfactory reason, is that it so seemed good in the sight of God.

Fruit of the Spirit

The Gentile Christians in Galatia had believed the good news about Jesus when Paul evangelised them. But some Jewish false teachers had visited them and taught the Christians had to obey the Jewish laws. These laws controlled people. Some of the Christians in Galatia believed the false teachers. Paul was very worried about the Christians. So he wrote this letter to teach them the truth again. He reminded them about the true liberty that Jesus gave.
