July 2022 (Gospel Centered Justification)

FBC Gallatin,

I can think of no better sermon series to lead us into the month of July where we celebrate freedom in our country in light of the even greater freedom we have in Christ because of what he did for us on the cross! We are no longer slaves to sins curse and guilt because we have been justified on the basis of the finished work of Christ on our behalf. God the Father declares that each one of us believers are just and righteous and perfect and forgiven, not because of our own works, but because of Jesus’ work on our behalf. Look back through the series sermon outlines below to be reminded of this very important truth of our Gospel Centered Justification through the book of Galatians and celebrate your Freedom because of Christ!


Pastor Daniel Pelichowski
