The Rescuer Christ (Gal 1:1-5)

Paul’s epistle to the Galatians sought to address a major problem facing the early church. Because of false teachers, the church was quickly abandoning the gospel of grace, of justification by faith alone, in favor of a gospel of works and law. However, even in the introduction to his letter, Paul is quick to remind the Galatian churches of the gospel of Jesus Christ, “who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” (Gal. 1:4). In this sermon, Pastor Dave Leandre covers the historical context of Galatians and encourages us today to fully trust in the merits and saving work of our rescuer Christ.
