The New Normal #4

“Unordinary Ways”



Galatians 4:3

Ordinary forces (basic principles) keep you focused on the commonplace things of life.


Galatians 4:4-6

It took an unordinary birth, by means of a virgin, so we could receive birth into an unordinary way of doing life.


Because we are adopted into this “New Normal,” it takes a while for it to become our normal way of life. Weird principles: Lose your life to gain it. Be a giver not a taker in life. See with your heart not just with your eyes.


Galatians 4:28-29

We like Isaac, children of a promise, born again by the power of the Holy Spirit. The promise was a promise made as a covenant.


Persecution, discrimination, and harassment are part of being born again into a family that’s looked down on because of its family roots.


Galatians 4:22-24

The ordinary way of life is one of slavery, and controlled by the sin principles and principalities of this world.


Symptoms of an unordinary life:


  1. Unordinary Grace
  1. Unordinary Forgiveness
  2. Unordinary Acceptance
  1. Unordinary Potential
  1. Unordinary Provision
  2. Unordinary Peace
  1. Unordinary Power


The source for all of this unordinary life, is found in Galatians 4:5-7


Galatians 4:5-7
