In our Christian walk, we are often torn between extremes:
• The left vs the right.
• The progressive vs the traditional.
• The authoritarian vs the libertarian.
• The liberal vs the stoic, just to name a few.
What is the right way to go? What directions guide me in my living?
Things have not changed in the almost 2000 years since Paul wrote the Book of Galatians. Christians have always been tossed back and forth between extremes. Paul masterfully deals with these issues by pointing us towards Jesus and the freedom He offers.
This week we will be introducing the book of Galatians and going through Chapter 1 verses 1-10 this week. Paul starts out this letter by explaining why he can be trusted with telling the readers the truth.
If you want to understand the background to the book better, read Acts 9:1-31, Acts 11:19-30 and Acts 15 where Paul tells us the story of his own conversion and early ministry.
Looking forward to seeing you
