1.22.17 How to Run Well


Sermon Title: “How to Run Well”
Text: Galatians 5:7-12

Main Idea: The Christian life is like a race, a life-long marathon. We can get side-tracked, “boxed in” by our opponents, or even disqualified. We need to keep running in the gospel, and avoid pitfalls like legalism. How do we run well and reach the finish line?

1. Remove all hindrances, even people, if necessary (vv. 7-9, 10b, 12)
2. Put your confidence in the Lord, not your own strength (v. 10a)
3. Do a self-diagnostic, making sure your gospel is still offensive (v. 11)
