Morning: Song of Solomon 6–8 Song of Solomon 6–8 (Listen) Others 6 Where has your beloved gone, O most beautiful among women? Where has your beloved turned, that we may seek him with you? Together in the Garden of Love She 2 My beloved has gone down to his garden to the beds of spices, to graze1 in the gardens and to gather lilies.3 I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine; he grazes among the lilies. Solomon and His Bride Delight in Each Other He 4 You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love, lovely as Jerusalem, awesome as an army with banners.5 Turn away your eyes from me, for they overwhelm me— Your hair is like a flock of goats leaping down the slopes of Gilead.6 Your teeth are like a flock of ewes that have come up from the washing; all of them bear twins; not one among them has lost its young.7 Your cheeks are like halves of a pomegranate behind your veil.8 There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, and virgins without number.9 My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her. 10 “Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners?” She 11 I went down to the nut orchard to look at the blossoms of the valley, to see whether the vines had budded, whether the pomegranates were in bloom.12 Before I was aware, my desire set me among the chariots of my kinsman, a prince.2 Others 13 3 Return, return, O Shulammite, return, return, that we may look upon you. He Why should you look upon the Shulammite, as upon a dance before two armies?4 7 How beautiful are your feet in sandals, O noble daughter! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, which looks toward Damascus.5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses. 6 How beautiful and pleasant you are, O loved one, with all your delights!57 Your stature is like a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its fruit. Oh may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,9 and your mouth6 like the best wine. She It goes down smoothly for my beloved, gliding over lips and teeth.7 10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me. The Bride Gives Her Love 11 Come, my beloved, let us go out into the fields and lodge in the villages;812 let us go out early to the vineyards and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and beside our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved. Longing for Her Beloved 8 Oh that you were like a brother to me who nursed at my mother's breasts! If I found you outside, I would kiss you, and none would despise me.2 I would lead you and bring you into the house of my mother— she who used to teach me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the juice of my pomegranate.3 His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me!4 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases. 5 Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved? Under the apple tree I awakened you. There your mother was in labor with you; there she who bore you was in labor. 6 Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy9 is fierce as the grave.10 Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD.7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he11 would be utterly despised. Final Advice Others 8 We have a little sister, and she has no breasts. What shall we do for our sister on the day when she is spoken for?9 If she is a wall, we will build on her a battlement of silver, but if she is a door, we will enclose her with boards of cedar. She 10 I was a wall, and my breasts were like towers; then I was in his eyes as one who finds12 peace. 11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; he let out the vineyard to keepers; each one was to bring for its fruit a thousand pieces of silver.12 My vineyard, my very own, is before me; you, O Solomon, may have the thousand, and the keepers of the fruit two hundred. He 13 O you who dwell in the gardens, with companions listening for your voice; let me hear it. She 14 Make haste, my beloved, and be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of spices.

Amen. No Other Gospel 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. 10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant2 of Christ. Paul Called by God 11 For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel.3 12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. 14 And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when he who had set me apart before I was born,4 and who called me by his grace, 16 was pleased to reveal his Son to5 me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone;6 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas and remained with him fifteen days. 19 But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord's brother. 20 (In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!) 21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 22 And I was still unknown in person to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 23 They only were hearing it said, “He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” 24 And they glorified God because of me.

Paul had every reason to boast in his bonafides: his training and experience made him successful in every way. And yet, miraculously, Christ entrusted to Paul, a former enemy of the faith, the Crown Jewels of the gospel and invited Paul into a life of hardship. Why would Paul do this? Because it is real and beautiful.Preached by Brian Habig.

Paul was adamant. If there is anything... ANYTHING... that gets added to the gospel of Grace, it spells trouble. The teller of the lies should be cast out, and the hearer of the lies should beware. Our hope eternal is in, and only in, Christ alone to save, sustain, and sanctify us for all of eternity. Preached by Brian Habig.

For those of us old enough to remember the world changing events of September 2001, you probably remember the morning of this day, 21 years ago today... September 12. The eyes of the entire world were focused on the NYC skyline, wondering what it would look like the 'day after' that horrific 9/11 tragedy? Sure enough, as daylight came, we saw the pile of debris was still smoldering and for any who had lived or worked in NYC the absence of those two enormous towers caused one of the most famous skylines in the world to be almost unrecognizable, on this date 21 years ago! May I urge you to not rush into this day before you give some thought to what was happening in our world 21 years ago this week and how much our world has changed in these two decades?

11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. 14 I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother's womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. 17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus. Galatians 1
Galatians 1: Manifesto of Grace | Grace is God's love without earning it. Grace is God's peace without deserving it. Grace is God's forgiveness without groveling for it. In God's grace is the truest of all freedom, and Galatians is a manifesto of grace. Journey 4 | Law and Grace. Journey #4 opens the Bible's grand story of redemption in Exodus, as Moses leads the Israelites out of slavery and into the wilderness. God delivers the law in Leviticus - but can the law save? Redemption comes into full glory in the NT letters of Ephesians and Philemon, and Paul delivers his manifesto of grace in Galatians.

This Gospel comes directly from God, by God, to the apostle Paul (and the other apostles) to us and the message starts with bad news and ends up being really good news – if we respond to God's grace, through Faith, in Christ alone.
The world is dead in sin but the gospel promises us another world. In Galatians 1, Paul talks of how Jesus has rescued Christians from “the present evil age.” We have been rescued and delivered for something else but we often still live so much like the rest of the world. Through the gospel, Jesus points us to a new life.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord 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, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen Galatians 1:3-5
Morning: Isaiah 29:19; Isaiah 53:7; Matthew 11:29; Matthew 18:3–4; 1 Corinthians 13:4; Galatians 5:22–23; 1 Timothy 6:11; 1 Peter 2:21–23; 1 Peter 3:4 The fruit of the Spirit is… gentleness. The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the Lord, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel.—“Unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”—The imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit… in God's sight is very precious.—Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant. Pursue… gentleness.—“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart.”—He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.—Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return… but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. Isaiah 29:19 (Listen) 19 The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the LORD, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel. (ESV) Isaiah 53:7 (Listen) 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. (ESV) Matthew 11:29 (Listen) 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (ESV) Matthew 18:3–4 (Listen) 3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (ESV) 1 Corinthians 13:4 (Listen) 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant (ESV) Galatians 5:22–23 (Listen) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (ESV) 1 Timothy 6:11 (Listen) Fight the Good Fight of Faith 11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. (ESV) 1 Peter 2:21–23 (Listen) 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. (ESV) 1 Peter 3:4 (Listen) 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. (ESV) Evening: Luke 9:23; 2 Corinthians 5:14–15; 2 Corinthians 6:8; Galatians 1:10; Galatians 5:11; Philippians 1:29; 2 Timothy 2:12; 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 4:14–16 “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise.—Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.—The offense of the cross. If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed…. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake.—One has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.—If we endure, we will also reign with him. Luke 9:23 (Listen) Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. (ESV) 2 Corinthians 5:14–15 (Listen) 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. (ESV) 2 Corinthians 6:8 (Listen) 8 through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; (ESV) Galatians 1:10 (Listen) 10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant1 of Christ. Footnotes  1:10 For the contextual rendering of the Greek word doulos, see Preface (ESV) Galatians 5:11 (Listen) 11 But if I, brothers,1 still preach2 circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been removed. Footnotes  5:11 Or brothers and sisters; also verse 13  5:11 Greek proclaim (ESV) Philippians 1:29 (Listen) 29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake, (ESV) 2 Timothy 2:12 (Listen) 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; (ESV) 2 Timothy 3:12 (Listen) 12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, (ESV) 1 Peter 4:14–16 (Listen) 14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory1 and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. Footnotes  4:14 Some manuscripts insert and of power (ESV)
The Apostle Paul defends his Gospel to the church in Galatia that is in danger of believing a false gospel. To do this he shows how the Gospel of Jesus Christ transformed his own story by the way God graciously drew Paul to himself, saved him, and equipped him for ministry. This text invites us to see how God can transform and use our own broken stories through his grace.
This week Pastor Tim continues the series sermon series entitled Stay in the Grace of Jesus, a verse by verse study of the book of Galatians. Paul gives his testimony to the Galatians. He explains his encounter with Jesus that changed him forever and explained who he was before encountering Jesus. We hope this resource is a blessing to you. For more information about The Point Church, visit us online at www.tothepoint.church Sermon Points: 1. A Personal Encounter with Jesus (11-12) 2. He had a Religious Upbringing to Overcome (13-20) 3.

Paul fights for the TRUTH of justification by grace, through Faith in Christ alone. This Sunday will help you articulate the true gospel, expose the errors attacking around the gospel and cause you to treasure the gospel in your own life in a great way.
This semester we are going through a series on Galatians where we are looking at how Paul is showing us that the Gospel provides for us a freedom that is worth fighting for. A freedom in Jesus Christ that liberates us from our enslavement to sin and all of the burdens it places upon us.
