As a believer, you’re saved by God’s grace, redeemed from eternal separation from God, and you’re now a child of God through your faith.  So, Pastor John explains today, don’t try to work for your salvation or add to it by doing the works of the law.  Instead of growing your faith or bringing you closer to God, these rites and rituals of religion decrease your faith and pull you away from God and His grace.   Instead, you must humble yourself and trust God’s grace alone! Now, let’s join Pastor John in the book of Galatians chapter 4 as he begins his message Paul’s Pastoral Appeal.

Scripture
Galatians 4:8 - 20

4:8 But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. 9 But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain. 12 Brethren, I urge you to become like me, for I became like you. You have not injured me at all. 13 You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first. 14 And my trial which was in my flesh you did not despise or reject, but you received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 15 What then was the blessing you enjoyed? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your own eyes and given them to me. 16 Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? 17 They zealously court you, but for no good; yes, they want to exclude you, that you may be zealous for them. 18 But it is good to be zealous in a good thing always, and not only when I am present with you. 19 My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you, 20 I would like to be present with you now and to change my tone; for I have doubts about you.
