Read the sermon text: Galatians 2:11-14

Read the sermon summary: “We’re all hypocrites.” This oft repeated phrase has a ring of truth to it, and yet it may sometimes be used as an excuse for sin. In this passage, we see an instance of hypocrisy which called for a public rebuke. Peter felt the freedom to enjoy fellowship with Gentile believers, but when strict Jewish believers came into the picture he shrank back. In doing so, his actions implied that adhering to the law was a requirement for salvation. Peter’s hypocrisy was a direct attack on the gospel itself, threatening to plunge believers into a works-based salvation. In preparation for the sermon, consider the following questions: Why do you think Paul rebuked Peter publicly rather than privately? What is the meaning of Paul’s words in verse 14… how was Peter living like a Gentile and how was he forcing the Gentiles to live like Jews? What was the cause of Peter’s hypocrisy and what effect did it have on others?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
Lord I Need You
Lord I come I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
And without You I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart
 
Chorus
Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
 
Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
Where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
 
So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay
 
Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
