Men’s Thursdays – Galatians
|July 7||7:00pm - 8:30pm||Bayside Folsom | Worship Center||Free|
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until July 28, 2022
We’re not meant to live life by ourselves. God created us to live life connected to him and to the men around us. We’re gathering as a men’s group at the church on Thursday nights this summer to connect to God, his Word, and other men. Whether married, single, older, or younger, you’re invited to join us.
For June and July, we will be going through the book of Galatians together. This book is so vital for us to study today! It’s so important that we learn how to live in the Spirit. Many of us are driven by statistics, data, desires, and fear, but Jesus calls us to be led by the Spirit. in Galatians 5, Paul states that we cannot have two operating systems within ourselves or our church; either we choose the Spirit or our flesh, which is any independent coping mechanism for life apart from God. When we live outside of the Spirit, we are subject to indulgences, sexuality, religion (believing something other than God will solve our problems and manipulating deities to do what we want), and relationships. But the Holy Spirit breathes new life over chaos and enables us to be free from living in bondage to sin! The flesh uses and destroys, the law judges and excludes, but the Spirit of God transforms and loves. This could not be any more relevant to us today and can transform us, our families, our work relationships, our friendships, our calling and sense of identity, etc.
To be people moved and led by the Spirit, we must walk with Him in the overall ecosystem of our lives and create an environment where the Spirit delights to abide. Consistent surrender to the Spirit – creating daily space for Him – will allow Him to bear fruits of the Spirit in us, in our homes, and in our church.
Let’s do this! See you on Thursday nights!
