How do we receive blessings from God? Sometimes we're tempted to think that God will bless us because we are so nice, so religious, or so intelligent. In Galatians 3:1-9, the Apostle Paul shows that every blessing of the Christian life - from first to last - comes through faith, not works.
What is Christianity all about? Is it about rules and ceremonies? Is it about who your parents were or where you were born? According to Galatians 2:15-21, Christianity is all about justification by faith alone, union with Christ alone, and righteousness by grace alone.
Our culture longs for unity, freedom, and diversity. Yet we don't know where to find them. In our text, we see how the Apostle Paul went up to Jerusalem to fight for unity, freedom, and diversity in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Was the message of Paul fake news or good news? In Galatians 1:11-2:10, Paul explains that we can trust his message because he didn't receive it from any man but directly from Jesus Christ.
