Here is the weekend sermon in 10 tweets, "Are You Crazy?" (Galatians 3:1-14) Nik Wallenda during his 2012 Tightrope Walk over the Horseshoe Falls, Niagara Falls (DSH_3093)

1// What does the gospel of grace bring? God himself. And with God, his power. ‘You’re turning from God’s help to self-help.” Are you crazy!

2// Do you remember when you saw Christ on the cross, dying for YOUR sins?

3// Your efforts don’t get God’s approval. You have it. Your efforts don’t change you. They can’t.

4// Your efforts are important only insofar as they are made in cooperation with God’s resurrection power at work in you.

5// God has not promised to fix everything for you here on earth. But he has promised suffering. Why are we surprised?

6// "Doesn't God want me to be happy?" "No, not like that!" Part of our suffering in this world is unfulfilled desires.

7// The greatest miracle is the miracle of our conversion.

8// Family members get to know the Bible.

9// The law was a roadblock to the blessing of the nations. Israel jackknifed under its curse.

10// Jesus became a curse for us. I took the curve at 65mph and he crashed.
