Consolation Of Eternal Hope part 2

December 17, 2019

Pastor Al began our Christmas series yesterday, with part one of a message titled “Consolation Of Eternal Hope”. Are you feeling hopeless today? This is a time of year when a lot of people feel hopeless. Loneliness especially can bring about feelings of hopelessness. But if you are a child of God - a born again believer in Jesus Christ, you are never alone and you have eternal hope in Jesus!

Over the next eight broadcasts, we are going to take an in depth look at what the birth of Christ meant for a world in desperate need of a savior. Al has divided this series into four aspects of Christ’s presence in our lives - Eternal Hope, Eternal love, Eternal joy and Eternal peace. We’ll start today with Eternal hope, and the life of a man named Simeon.

Today, pastor Al Pittman continues his study of Galatians, and has us turn to the fifth chapter. It’s here that the apostle Paul combats the legalists of his day with the message of God’s grace.

As we go along in this section of Galatians, we’ll receive a very strong but needed warning not to pursue self-righteousness. Paul wrote this letter to a group of Jews who just couldn’t accept that the gospel message was intended for Gentiles as well. God’s grace is available to every person - and hallelujah to that! We will finish up Galatians four today, and begin chapter five.

Today, we’ll observe God opening and closing doors for His children, and specifically the apostle Paul.  God sovereignly orchestrates the events of our lives, and that can be a great comfort to know.  Pastor Al will take us to Galatians chapter four.

Today, we begin a new chapter in our series through Galatians on The Dwelling Place, as we begin an examination of chapter four. Pastor Al Pittman will urge us to live by faith. Easier said than done? Perhaps, but it should be the goal of ebery Christian.

If we look at God’s law as a set of rules to follow in oder to get to heaven, we miss then point. We cannot obey the law perfectly, and the law points that out to us, so we must turn to faith in Christ for our salvation. Today on The Dwelling Place Pastor Al Pittman will elaborate as he continues his study of Galatians.

The law of God has no power to prevent sin - or redeem the sinner. Only grace can do that. That’s our theme on today’s The Dwelling Place with pastor Al Pittman.  The churches in Galatia had been deceived by false teachers, who had convinced them that they could be saved by works rather than grace.

Our problem with perfection was solved by Jesus. He paid the price to perfect us before a holy and perfect God. Isn’t that awesome? However, there are some people who still try to get to heaven by being “perfect”. It simply won’t work. The people of Galatia had a similar issue. They thought following rules was the path to heaven.

Pastor Al Pittman is taking us through the challenging epistle of Galatians, and we can see that the Galatians were much like many Christians today – they thought they needed to add something to their faith in order to please God and get to heaven.
December 4, 2019
Pastor Al Pittman is currently taking us through the book of Galatians - a letter written by Paul to a group of believers who had been seriously misled by false teachers. They had been taught by Paul that the gospel message was for Jews and Gentiles alike, but they had then been misled into believing that the gentiles were disqualified.

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies.

In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
