Today the pastor preached on Galatians 2:1-6. Pretty much, he made a summary of the passage. The majority of what I remember is this (the part after the verse):
Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek. (Galatians 2:3)
He used his three and a half-month old son as an example here: he said that after his sons diaper had been changed, he would always hold his hands up to his dad; wanting to be carried. His son wouldn’t be able to go anywhere without help. Likewise, we can’t go anywhere (Spiritually) without the help of Jesus. It’s not that we need to be circumcised, it’s that we need to be carried by Jesus.
He also mentioned us; standing in front of the Hoover Dam. And having the dam break. Obviously, we would be crushed. He then related that to what Jesus went through, having all of our sins dumped onto him… To be honest, my memory doesn’t extend to the verse he used that in context with though.
