Sermon Outline

WHO’S YO MAMA?

Galatians 4:21-31

Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not listen to the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the bondwoman and one by the free woman. But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh,  and the son by the free woman through the promise. This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar.

Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother. For it is written, “Rejoice, barren woman who does not bear; Break forth and shout, you who are not in labor; For more numerous are the children of the desolate than of the one who has a husband.” And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise.

But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also. But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.” So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.
Galatians 4:21-31

 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?

Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not listen to the law?

Galatians 4:21

 

For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

James 2:10

 

WHO’S YO MAMA?

For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the bondwoman and one by the free woman. But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and the son by the free woman through the promise.

Galatians 4:22-23

 

TWO MOTHERS – TWO COVENANTS

This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar.

Galatians 4:24

 

TWO MOTHERS – TWO CITIES

Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.

Galatians 4:25

 

But the Jerusalem above is free; she is our mother.

Galatians 4:26

 

THE HEAVENLY CITY

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

Revelation 21:2

 

for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

Hebrews 11:10

 

A CITY PREPARED BY JESUS

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. “And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

John 14:2-6

 

REJOICE IN BEING IN THE FAMILY OF GOD

For it is written, “Rejoice, barren woman who does not bear; Break forth and shout, you who are not in labor; For more numerous are the children of the desolate than of the one who has a husband.”

Galatians 4:27

 

GOD IS THE REASON FOR REJOICING

For your Maker is your husband— the Lord Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth.

Isaiah 54:5

 

LEGALISM IS OF THE FLESH

And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise. But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also.

Galatians 4:28-29

 

NO ROOM FOR FALSE GOSPEL

But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.”

Galatians 4:30

 

OUR MAMA IS FREEDOM

So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.

Galatians 4:31
