070316 – Theology Matters

Paul Tillich wrote, “If I were asked to sum up the Christian message for our time in two words, I would say with Paul: It is the message of a “New Creation.”
The Apostle Paul ends his letter to the church in Galatia with a heartfelt, personal plea: let the free gift of God’s grace in Christ permeate your lives, through and through. Through baptism, we are new creations, so do not be pulled back into the bondage of believing we must earn abundant life.
If you live in grace, the Holy Spirit will be at work in you (both individually and collectively). When times are tough, you’ll be bearing one another’s burdens. When disagreements occur, you will be restoring relationships with gentleness and compassion. And in all things you will be growing in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness and self-control.
