In the book of Genesis, the story of Joseph begins with a dream. But in order for that dream to become reality, Joseph must overcome some obstacles in his life, moving from where he is to where hes meant to be.

Paul wrote the book of Galatians to a group of Christians who were adding legalistic rules and stipulations to the Gospel, the message that Jesus saves us from our sin and reconciles us to God. If were not careful, we can make the same mistakes, trading the gift of grace for chains we were never meant to bear. But Jesus sets us free from Gospel distortions and distractions, and He gives us the Holy Spirit to help us live unchained.
The Difference Jesus Makes
Jesus stands in a league of His own. His words are captivating; His heart is enthralling; and just when we think we've got Him figured out, He surprises us all over again. This is no ordinary man. Once you meet Jesus face to face, you will never be the same.
Grace Is Still Greater
Hebrews 12:15 challenges us to make sure no one misses out on the life-changing reality of God's lavish grace. As followers of Jesus, we talk a whole lot about grace, though sometimes we really underestimate its power. But here's the truth: no matter what we think or how we feel, the grace of God has no limits—it won't dry up and it will never run out. Even after all you've done, even after what's been done to you, grace is still greater.
Get Over Yourself
In his first letter to Timothy, Paul reminds this young pastor of a harsh reality: sometimes we become the greatest obstacles to Gods work in our own lives. But once we get out of the way and allow God to transform us, He can make an impact through us like weve never imagined. There comes a time when we need to look in the mirror and just say it plainly: Get over yourself!
