Which Plan Have You Embraced

by Linda Sasso

What is your religion based on? There are many religious beliefs in our world. How do you know which belief is the right one? How do you know if you are on the right path trusting in the right plan? The Apostle Paul gives us a clear picture of two distinct plans, one is right, […]

Knowing the Peace of God

by Linda Sasso

“Knowing the Peace of God” If there is one thing which should be in the hearts & mind of those who are followers of Jesus, and believers in the Almighty it’s this, Peace! John 14:27, Galatians 5:22.

Until Christ is Formed in You

by Linda Sasso

There is so much important spiritual information in today’s text. We see the dangers of being led astray by legalism and false teaching. We see Paul’s fears of losing the Galatian believers after all his labor of love. We see Paul’s heart of a pastor as he pleads with these believers to simply trust in […]

Something Much Better in Christ

by Linda Sasso

Do you realize that as Christians we have something much better than Adam and Eve ever had? They were God’s pure and innocent creatures, created in His image.

Spiritual Peer Pressure

by Linda Sasso

Today’s text (Galatians 2:11-21) gives an account of a rare moment in church history when one apostle publicly rebuked another. We learn many important lessons from this story. We learn of the power of negative peer pressure. We learn that even the spiritual giants can do wrong sometimes. We learn the importance of standing up […]

The Danger of Spiritual Compromise

by Linda Sasso

In the Apostle Paul’s day, just like today, religious people tried to change the Gospel by adding rules and requirements. The first Christians were Jews. So naturally, one of the first questions that came up was, “Do you have to become a Jew before you can become a Christian?” Those who believed this to be […]

Who Are You trying to Impress

by Linda Sasso

In today’s text, the Apostle Paul makes the important point that you can either live to please God or you can live to please people. You can’t do both. Paul, in his explanation of why he was preaching the gospel, reveals many important facts…  “For am I now trying to win the favor of people, […]
