2014-01-20 - What Would Paul Say?
For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)
I was shocked at the Galatia churches actions. Why the backsliding? Why turn their backs on God?
I didnt always have a personal relationship with God. In fact, before accepting God as the Lord of my life, I was tearing believers down with a vengeance. The Galatian people did not have that excuse. They knew what it is like to talk to God. Why would anyone jeopardize that? Do the people think that fellowship will remain, when they turn away from the Lord?
I just want the dear Galatian people to follow the path of Jesus earlier in life than I did. I hope the people change their attitude and start living for the Lord. May God direct their steps, and steer them in the right direction.
Lord, Grant me Your grace and peace, not just today - but every day. You will guide me along lifes misadventures. I know You will be there in times of trouble. You are here right now. Thank You that every detail about myself is important to You. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
