Gospel Unity

September 30, 2018 Speaker: Nick Carruthers Series: From Shackles to Sonship

Passage: Galatians 2:1–2:10

When we read the scriptures we see that Jesus really loves and cares about the unity of His church. In fact, if you read his high priestly prayer in John 17,  the main thing he was praying about was that his people would be one, that they would be united. However, when we come to this week’s passage in Galatians, we see that there was quite a bit of disunity and conflict in the early church about  how Gentile believers should relate to the law. What we will see in this first part of Galatians chapter two is that the basis of our unity as Christians is the gospel. We live in a culture right now where everything is so divided and polarized; unfortunately, that mindset has crept into the church. However, as followers of Jesus, we need to remember that we have been called to unity, and again our unity is in Jesus and in the gospel.
