Have you ever bumped into something because you weren't watching where you are going? Maybe you were looking down at your phone and missed an obstacle right in front of you. When we lose focus of the proper thing we can often be mislead. As Pastor Michael Hughes shares from Galatians 4:11-20, the Apostle Paul has some powerful words to help us keep focused on the things that really matter, not just in life, but for all eternity.

Enjoy this relaxed and informal presentation of live questions fielded by Senior Pastor Michael Hughes and special Guest Sean Timm during a recent Question and Answer Night held at Calvary Chapel of Emmett.

It's pretty easy for believers to fall into the trap of thinking that our works or rituals can make God love us more. Sometimes we might even believe that we are better than others who don't do all of the religious things that we do.  In Galatians 4:1-11 Pastor Michael Hughes shares how Paul had to set the record straight and remind the church in Galatia that to follow religious rules is to put ourselves back underneath the law of God that He died to fulfill. 

The Bible says that bad company corrupts good morals.  This is why it's so important that we are careful to choose our friends wisely.  In 2 Chronicles 17-18 Pastor Michael Hughes shares with us how this principal can be worked out practically in our daily lives.

We've all been wrong a time or two in our lives, that's just part of the human experience.  There are times however when our incorrect beliefs or views dictate our actions and cause us to make some pretty serious life mistakes. As Pastor Michael Hughes shares from Galatians 3:15-29, even when we are headed in completely the wrong direction there is always an opportunity to flip things around.

In the Bible there are many historical accounts of Kings who did the faithful thing by trusting in God and also did the faithless thing by trusting in Men. So too in our lives we can fall into the same trap. In 2 chronicles 16 Pastor Michael Hughes shares with us the faithfulness and the folly of King Asa.

It can be difficult to watch someone make poor choices, especially when they know better.  In Galatians 3:1-14 Pastor Michael Hughes shares with us how the Apostle Paul expressed such bewilderment at the actions of the believers in Galatia, who seemed to have forgotten the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Bibles tells us that the eyes of the Lord roam to and fro over all the earth. Have you ever really thought of the implications of that? That He sees everything all the time. In 2 Chronicles 14-16 Pastor Michael Hughes explains how this idea can be a comfort to us as believers.

Have you ever tried to fix something and only made it worse? Maybe you were trying to repair something or make peace with a loved one and things just seemed to end up even more broken than when you began? in Galatians 2:11-21 Pastor Michael Hughes explains that when it comes to our right standing before God, our works will only make things worse. Yet our forgiveness is freely offered by God Himself.

Salt can be a very good thing. It can perfectly season our food, it can keep us safe on the roads, salt can even benefit our health in many ways. However, it is possible to have too much of a good thing.  In 2 Chronicles 13, Pastor Michael Hughes explains just how easily something that was good can quickly become something very very bad.
