TBC Sermons Podcast delivers weekly audio of our main service sermons throughout the year. At TBC, one of our core values is the primacy of Scripture, and we have always treasured expository preaching of God's Word. We hope this podcast will draw you closer to the person of Christ and enrich your understanding of the Gospel.
Political Playing: Gal 2.11-21
Politics...in the church....yep! Believe it or not, churches and church members in leadership, unfortunately, can be very political. And, I don't mean "political" as in national government. I'm referring to church politics in a negative sense of power grabbing and a desire to control others. Join us this week as Pastor Jared discusses an aspect of local church ministry that all too easily influences our behavior.
Power Grabbing: Gal 2.1-10
While defending his apostleship, Paul refuses to be thought of as a leader who grabs for power. Instead, Paul's heart is set on being accountable, not political and free not forced into legalism. As a result, Paul lives out a true spirituality that is perceived not postured. If you want to hear about how pastors and church leaders can distance themselves from worldly leadership and the pursuit of power, join Pastor Jared preaches in Gal 2.1-10.
People Pleasing: Gal 1.10-24
If you can discredit the messenger, you can discredit his or her message. The false teachers attempted to discredit Paul's Gospel by questioning his authority and apostleship. Nevertheless, Paul makes it abundantly clear that neither his message nor his apostleship is from man. In fact, he will never be accused of being a people pleaser. He is a servant of Christ!
Counterfeit Gospel: Gal 1.6-10
Paul typically begins almost all his New Testament letters with a word of thanksgiving. However, Galatians is shockingly different. There is no thanksgiving and Paul immediately addresses a major issue concerning the Gospel. Join Pastor Jared as he continues in TBC's sermon series through Galatians entitled, "Gospel Matters."
Core of the Gospel: Gal 1.1-5
Martin Luther wrote in the preface to his commentary on Galatians, "This doctrine [Righteousness of God] can never be taught, urged, and repeated enough." At Tulsa Bible Church, we whole-heartedly agree with Luther's statement. Preaching the Gospel and the righteousness of Christ is why we are starting a brand new sermon series through Galatians. Join Pastor Jared as he introduces this short, but powerful letter from the Apostle Paul to the churches in Galatia.
The Whole Duty of Man: Eccl 12.8-14
After all has been written in Ecclesiastes, readers are provided with one final duty and command. Life seems so futile and meaningless. How can we leave this book with any kind of hope or encouragement? Solomon provides us with a timeless command to build faith and hope that there really is something beyond our temporary world. Join Jared as he finishes the sermon series in Ecclesiastes.
