Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 7:17-24; Psalm 112:1-4, 10b; Galatians 6:11-18


John Nelson

When we read Galatians 6: 11-18, we gain an awareness of the conflict between grace and law, faith and deeds, but also become aware of modern-day parallels. Through Saul of Tarsus’ dramatic life changing conversion on the road to Damascus, the greatest antagonist of the church is transformed, becoming the Apostle Paul, the greatest missionary of the church.

Who was this Apostle Paul? The Apostle Paul is considered to be the second most important person in the New Testament and maybe even better known than Jesus due to his 13 letters. Why is he credited with spreading the Christian faith and his letters (epistles) credited with completing the New Testament?

What was the main purpose of the Apostle Paul’s writing of Galatians? To whom was it written? The early church faced a major controversy, but who was involved in that controversy? Why were the Jewish law and Christian freedom in conflict?   How did the Apostle Paul’s writings correct this problem? The Apostle Paul preached about the Good News, but what was it and who was it for?    Paul teaches us that the “rule of faith” is the Bible and we should defend the truth of the gospel and reject all false teachers and prophets who would misuse or manipulate the truth. We are free in Christ and are required to walk in the light and “boast in”…celebrate….glorify in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ!
