Galatians 3:13 -Is it True?

"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE" [Galatians 3:13 NASB] - What love. What truth -or is it? Do we have a sense of salvation will let us "Flee the wrath to come?". The very wrath of God that John The Baptist warned us about? Wrath sent by The Almighty on sinners. Do we believe in sin. Often we talk about sin in a Greek philosophical sense in that we "missed the mark". Do we understand we did not miss the mark but that we knocked the target down and scoffed at it.
1 John 3:4
4 Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.
Do we believe there is a hell prepared for transgressors of the law?

Matthew 25:41 (New American Standard Bible)

41"Then He will also say to those on His left, "Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;"

Do we believe that God is Holy,Jealous and a Consuming Fire? Do we believe that most of all God is Love? This is how God describes Himself in Scripture.
Do we believe that God made a way for us to be reconciled to Himself through the life death burial and resurrection of His only Son?

Paul addresses -not the lost but the REDEEMED of the Church of Galatia.
He bluntly says "You foolish Galatians who has bewitched you?" Was there another better gospel? NO!!!

This gospel of love cost Him everything when I was worth nothing.
Do you believe this gospel?
People of the Church of Gainesville and everyone else in the world-this is your response-worship-grow and disciple-and participate in the sharing of the glorious gospel-our one and only but sure way for the world to be made right with God.

Guess what we will do in church Sunday? We will worship the living God-build up believers- and prepare to go and tell.
See you at church! What a privilege to do so.

In Christ Alone!
