Galatians 2:11-21 | Gospel Driven
January 7, 2024
After our sermon series on what it means to be the people of God generally, Johnny begins a new sermon series covering the vision and values of Christ Church Vienna specifically. Today, he covers what it means to be a Gospel-driven church. Being in-step with the Gospel means having a deeper understanding of the fact that it’s not works that save you, but faith in Jesus Christ. Even Peter had to be rebuked by Paul to understand this message, which means its an easy one to forget. Rather than works of the law, which literally refers to the Mosaic law of the Old Testament, a modern Christian turns to their own cultural significance and success as a measure of justification. We can turn what should be something subjective about our lives and turn it into a measuring stick for others. Once we better understand the Gospel’s message of hope for everybody regardless of success or stature, we can better fulfill our role as a church meant for sinners who are looking for God.
