Text: Galatians 1: 1-5
Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead ;)………Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul’s apostleship and office he owed to no man but to God. The assignment God has given you to do on earth is not from man but God.
You need not be discouraged or dismayed by what man may do to frustrate you and the assignment you’ve been called to do. Keep your focus and work it through.
Your Christianity is by the hand of the almighty. Put your best into it. Give it your best shot and God will assist you.
God’s grace and peace is available for you. Wish no evil for any man. Pray for your enemies. Pray that God changes their heart from evil to good.
The Love of God rescues you from sin.
The good that you know to do--go back and do it without holding malice and grudges in your heart against others.
When all is said and done, you shall give account of the task God placed into your hands to accomplish on earth. Keep this mindset in perspective and live a life of fullness and gratitude here on earth.
