"...but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" 2 Peter 3:1

Salvation by Grace - Galatians 1:3-5

Posted in Weekly Devotional

The basic fact behind the situation of this epistle is this: Paul’s gospel was a gospel of Grace. He believed with all his heart that nothing a man could do could ever win the favor of God. He believed passionately that no one could ever earn the love of God. He therefore believed that all that was left for a man to do was to fling himself on the love and mercy of God in one great act of faith that leads to obedience to all that God has commanded.
 
We can only take in wondering gratitude what God offers; What we could not do for ourselves God has done for us. That is what Paul had preached to the Galatians and that is what he now wished for them and for all who read this letter.
 
He held up the cross saying God loved you like that. Religion then becomes a matter not of satisfying the demands of the law...but of meeting the obligations of love.
