If You be in Christ… (Part 1) (Galatians 3:27-4:6)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, August 23, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Are you in Christ? No one can save themselves from sin. There is only one way to be saved and that's thru Jesus Christ. During the time of Jesus' birth, God had a greater plan. God sent His only son to a place that was full of evil. Jesus was born into the law. Even though we were all born into the world into sin, Jesus was born just the same but was born sinless. Jesus felt the suffering and hardship just as us but He remained sinless. Jesus was born of the flesh Mary, just so He could have the flesh to endure everything that we in the flesh endure. God would have sent another way to clean the sin if there was one. Hundreds of thousands of animals were sacrificed for sin, but none of those were enough. There was only one born sinless. The little babies and people that are mentally handicapped usually do not have the understanding of sin, right from wrong. But for the rest of us there will come a day where our souls are awakened to a lost and saved condition. We live in a day where we rely on self help but one can't save themselves. There is a payment for sin, it's death. In order for the sin to be paid Jesus was sent. Jesus paid the sin debt by being sacrificed. Therefore, if one rejects Jesus as being the payment for sin, they will die an eternal death in hell.

Galatians 3:27-4:6

27For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. (KJV)
