Thesis: The Gospel of grace is the heart of Paul's message to the Galatians, fueling the Protestant Reformation. Legalistic "do's" and "don'ts" have distorted the true gospel ever since the 1st century and continues to detract from God's glory in salvation. Paul reminds the Galatians, and us, that God alone is to get credit for salvation.
1 The True Gospel Unites Genuine Believers v. 1-2
>Barnabas was a close friend Paul's and defended him in Acts
>Barnabas and Paul split over wanting to take Mark on a missionary Journey.
>The true Gospel Unites Believer, but this does not mean that they always agree.
>Sometimes they are both right, don't be so quick to write off someone's ministry
>If you go a different way, make sure it is in peace recognizing God has a plan
>Titus, like Barnabas, was united with Paul because of the Gospel
>Paul went to the Apostles to show he was not preaching a different Gospel
>Paul did his best to obey the scripture and be peaceable with all men
>May God forgive us for the times when we are disobedient, but the true Gospel Unites us.
2 The true Gospel Exposes the False
>Timothy was circumcised for him to have more opportunities to minister.
>This was not the case for Titus because he was not half Jew as Timothy was
>The law makes us guilty, and shows we need Christ only, not adding things and nullifying grace
>Place your faith in Christ, in His death for your sins and trust Him and His Word. Believe the Gospel.
