Talks In Transit

Continuing in our series on Galatians: Faith, Freedom, and the Produce Aisle, we now look at a the issue of family as it relates to Paul's letter.

Text: Galatians 3:26-4:7

Title: "All In The Family"


Family. It brings out the best in us and worst in us.

Here I gave two illustrations in my own life from my own family

The Good: Sunday lunches with strangers and outcasts
The Bad: Season of betrayal


We all long for the good in family life. We don't always get it because you, me, parents, brothers, and sisters can be pretty jacked. Some of us come from really good families where we are loved, cared for, and made to feel special as only family environments can do. But even in the best of families, ugly stuff can come out. Others of us have families that fall short of that and it leaves us wanting something more, something deeper, something stronger. Even if we come from strong, healthy families, we want that, too.

Big Idea

(Today we are going to be looking at how) faith in Jesus connects us to a new spiritual family dynamic - one growing in unity and intimacy.

1. Unity - with brothers and sisters in Christ

2. Intimacy - with God, our Father
