DAY 4 - GALATIANS
March 2, 2023
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.
According to this text, Paul’s Gospel was revealed to him by Jesus Christ. At this point in the letter, Paul begins to use the first person. He is presenting his own testimony of how he encountered the grace of God. Paul is making the point that his message and ministry were divinely given by Jesus. God called Paul to know him AND called him to preach among the Gentiles the same grace he had experienced. God chose Paul not only to save him but also to use him to win others.
1. What is your authority for the message you proclaim? Think about it this way: do you get more of your message from personal prayer and time in the Word of God OR from people?
2. God chose you and called you! What has God called you to do?
