Not Man’s Gospel
Verse: Galatians 1:11–1:24
In Paul’s day, just like today, everyone was looking for satisfaction. And what Paul knows is that every other path that is not Christ is a dead end. Nothing will bring ultimate satisfaction, eternal satisfaction except the gospel of Jesus Christ that was preached to the Galatians. Paul knows, and he wants us to know, that the gospel is not merely a philosophy of life (one of many), it’s not merely a moral code, the gospel is not just secret knowledge of a mystical union with the divine for the elite few. No, the gospel is the truth of God. When Jesus died for you, Christian, something happened between you and God. And it was all initiated by God himself.
