A freedom to choose God and choose to reflect His heart to the world around us. AWAKEN is a series looking into the book of Galatians and the truths the Apostle Paul was driving...

Paul teaches there are three types of people: those who don't know God, those who do and those who know God but act like they don't. Two key indicators of spiritual maturity are how you relate to others and the role you play in the Kingdom.

We live in a tired society, a weary generation. Will you choose to go back to the slavery of Egypt like the faithless Israelites? God had delivered them. Will you choose, after being saved and redeemed by God, to work for your salvation, trapped by legalism? You can rest now.

Getting old to the glory of God means resolutely resisting the typical American dream of retirement.
