Galatians 2, Day 2

Galatians 2 Transforming Mission


Galatians 2:6-10

Paul is being challenged by a group of people who think Peter, James, and John taught him everything he knows. He’s also desiring to stay connected to the center of the faith in Jerusalem. But, if he’s not careful, they’ll either think he’s saying anything goes or Peter, James, and John taught him everything he knows. More than anything, at the center of this difficult passage, Paul wants to keep the unity of the church.  


How do you keep focused on balancing the essential message of the gospel in the midst of times of disagreement and differences? What is essential? What did Paul offer to us that we can model today?

    Because of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ I am forgiven of my sins. I am also challenged by his statement in Matthew 28: 19 “Go and make disciples of all nations….” Spreading the Word was what Paul’s life was all about after his transformation. It should be our mission as well up to our ability. I pray each day that God will continue to use me to expand His territory just as Jabez prayed in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. Prayer. Prayer should be the first thing we do each, during the day and the end of the day at bedtime. Pray as Jesus did, “Not my will but Thy will be done.” Thank him for leading you and using you. God Bless!
