Scriptures used:

  • Galatians 1


  • Paul was an apostle not of men or by men, but by Jesus Christ.  It is part of the administration of Jesus Christ.
  • Paul, like the eleven, was one whom God gave to Jesus Christ.
  • Letter was from Paul and the brethren, they joined themselves to what Paul was saying.
  • Paul extended grace and peace in his authority as an apostle.
  • Might be delivered from this present evil world – Jesus has done what it takes but it is our choice to receive it.
  • Jesus delivered himself for our sins. We are no better, we must walk in that place in humility, then you are grateful to God.
  • Being in Jesus and walking in Him. The secret is to know the cloak he gives is the righteousness of God, not ours. The armor He gives us is His, not ours. You have to have the constant state of mind that you are living in Him.
  • Gospel is all about the grace of God that covers our sin.  Other Gospel’s try to cover sin and make that which is cursed righteous.
  • Two things can remove you: 1 – self-righteousness/works righteousness, and 2 – removing yourself from fellowship. There are two laws God gave us to do. It is all about him, you’re a sinner, you need His grace and His mercy. Then it is easy to love others because you are in the same boat as them. So you extend grace and mercy to them and you store up grace and mercy for yourself to draw on.
  • Jewelers’ tumbler – take a diamond in the rough which can only be polished by another diamond. Put it in a tumbler with other diamonds and they grind one another. A diamond is known for its fire.  The minister’s of God are ministers of fire.  The grinding doesn’t feel good but you have to stay in that tumbler to become a minister of fire.
  • The tumbler only grinds the diamonds, every lesser rock is ground to nothing.
  • The only way we could be saved is by grace. When you realize that you have compassion on others.
  • Our sin nature, in the Lord, is what enables us to minister in compassion. Self-righteousness never ministers in this.
  • Those who preach any other Gospel are cursed and God is not with them.
  • If you’re going to please men you are not a servant of God. You are to love and exhort men. Sometimes they will hate you for it.
  • When you love God more than yourself it becomes easy.
  • Paul was taught by Jesus, God opened it up to Paul. He got it the same way Moses got the first five books of the Bible.
  • The revelation of God is important, more so today than then.
  • As then, God still reveals His Gospel to His apostles.
  • God knows exactly how to make known His Word and how to preserve it, even when all of that generation reject it like Jeremiah in his generation.
  • Galatians were Gentile believers who were being told by so-called Jewish believers a false Gospel. Paul said don’t listen to them.
  • He did not even go to any of the other Apostles – Paul is laying out God’s call and revelation to him had nothing to do with anyone else.
  • After three years he went up and saw only Peter and James, the Lord’s brother. Did not see anyone else.
  • The Jews did not know Paul by face but rejoiced and glorified God in him.  It was praise worthy and they rejoiced.
  • It is a temptation to begrudge another who has the Lord, something you’ve got to put off.  A person going forward in the Lord should be an encouragement to us.
  • Remember the call is by grace.
