Galatians is such an important book in the Word of God. It symbolizes what we are following: God, not man. Paul wrote many letters to Galatians churches, explaining his change through Christ. Before Paul became a christian, he was a devote Jew to the Jewish law. He religiously followed all the rules and believed in circumcision. The law he followed was based on deeds, not faith. After being saved, Paul realized that what he followed for his whole life was just a lie. Paul went beyond himself to proclaim Christ and to show people that the only thing he wanted to do was share the gospel.
There is Only One Good News: “I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.” Galatians 1:6-7 NLT
Paul’s Message Comes from Christ: “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.” Galatians 1:10-12 NLT
We Are to Consantly Share Jesus’s Name: “After that visit I went north into the provinces of Syria and Cilicia. And still the churches in Christ that are in Judea didn’t know me personally. All they knew was that people were saying, “The one who used to persecute us is now preaching the very faith he tried to destroy!” And they praised God because of me.” Galatians 1:21-24 NLT
Our purpose in life is to give God the glory He deserves. Everything we accomplish is through His power. We were once goats, fumbling around, bullying the weak, and obesessing over our own likings. But now, Jesus calls us His sheep. Sheep always stay in the herd. They don’t stray. When one gets lost, the sheep always will find its way back to the Sheppard. Because the Sheppard loves His sheep dearly.
Preaching the gospel is the only way to Christ. It glorifies Him! It is the truth! The truth will set everyone free! Our man made laws and rituals only sastify our temptations and glorify us. We should not call ourselves a slave for Christ if we live in that way. I pray for you all today you all will understand the true meaning of the gospel, which is we are all saved by Jesus alone.
