THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE GALATIANS

CHAPTER 2

          Greetings to you, and welcome back to Daily Bread. When we left off, Paul was recounting to the Galatians how the Gospel was brought to him by revelation from Jesus. We know he spent three years in Arabia and Damascus, then he went to Jerusalem. He saw only Peter and James the Lordís brother, then went to Syria and Cilicia, still being unknown by sight to the churches of Judśa, and the other Apostles, but they had heard about his reputation.

          Paul continues, Then fourteen years later, I went to Jerusalem again, with Barnabas, and took Titus with me too. I went up by revelation (guided by the Holy Spirit) and told them the Gospel that I preach to the Gentiles, privately to those with honorable reputation, lest my work be for no use.

          But Titus, who was with me, being a Gentile, wasnít required to be circumcised, and the reason why he wasnít forced was because impostors, pretending to be brethren were secretly brought in, who came in without our knowing to spy out our liberty (freedom) which we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might put us in jail. (In other words, they didnít know who Paul was and spies were sent in to try and catch them in something unlawful so they could throw them in jail.) We didn't give in to their demands in the slightest, but firmly opposed their accusations so that the TRUTH of the Gospel might continue with you.

FOR I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND YET I LIVE LESSON WITH FOR I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND YET I LIVE EXPLANATION

          But of these people who seemed to be important (whether they were, it doesnít matter to me because to God, one is not more important than another) in their group, they didnít esteem me to be important. But on the contrary, when they saw that the Gospel of the Gentiles was appointed to me just as the Gospel of the Jewish people was appointed to Peter, (for He [God] who worked completely in Peter to the apostleship of the Jewish, the same [God] was mighty in me toward the Gentiles) and when James, Peter and John, who seemed to be pillars (leaders), recognized the Grace that God had given to me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship (approval and respect) that we should go to the Gentiles and that they should go to the Jewish, with the Gospel. Only they asked that we should remember the poor, which I was very willing to do.

          But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was wrong about something. Because before that, truth came from James that Peter did eat with the Gentiles, but when they came to Antioch, he would not, fearing the Jewish people. And the other Jewish people concealed the fact that they had been eating with the Gentiles in the same way with him, so much that Barnabas also was carried away (influenced, followed) with their hypocrisy, following their example instead of using good judgment.

          To understand this clearer, let me explain a couple of things. In the Old Testament, it was unlawful for the Jewish people to associate with the Gentiles, let alone eat with them, a fact that Paul was clearly aware of, as he just mentioned in the last chapter that he was very well versed (better even than his peers) in the traditions (laws) of his ancestors. Now, Paul is also aware that Peter knows from experience (Acts 10:28) that this is not the case in the New Testament and that all should be treated as Godís people. This is also a perfect example of how nobody should ever feel unworthy of Godís Grace when they stumble. Even ďpillarsĒ like Peter, as Paul refers to them, can have something as life changing as seeing visions from God and then turn around and fall again. The important thing is, first, never use Godís Grace as justification or as an excuse to fall, and also, donít let your tumbles keep you down. Get up, admit your faults and carry on just as the Apostles did. They repented and accepted Godís Grace, then pushed forward in their Faith, probably with more determination than before.

          Back to Paulís story. He says, But when I saw that they didnít act honorably, according to the Truth of the Gospel, I said to Peter in front of everyone, If you, being Jewish, live after the manner of the Gentiles (if you believe that none of Godís people are common or unclean) and not as the Jewish people believe, why do you compel the Gentiles to live like the Jewish people (giving the example that they are different)?

FOR I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND YET I LIVE INFORMATION WITH FOR I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND YET I LIVE MEANING

          We who are Jewish by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a person isnít cleared of guilt by obeying the law, but by Faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ that we might be justified by the Faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law, because by following the law shall no person be justified. But if, while we hope to be justified (put right) by Christ, we ourselves also are found to be sinners, is Christ then the minister of sin? God forbid (certainly not).

        Because if I build again the things which I destroyed (the Old Testament), I make myself a transgressor. Because I, through the law am dead to the law, so that I might be alive for God.

          Remember that the law is for the lawless, or, sinners. So according to the law, which God saw that man could not comply with, the fate of man is death. If you live by faith in Christ, Godís law (the New Testament) is written in your heart and you live in God.

          Paul could really sum up a matter brilliantly, and to make his point clear about the Galatians having been led back to the belief that law and works were to be lived by instead of the TRUTH of the Gospel of Faith and Godís Grace, he tells them confidently, I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the Faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. I do not frustrate (nullify) the Grace of God, for if righteousness is achieved by the law, then Christ died for nothing.

          You canít really say that any clearer in todayís terms than what Paul wrote right there. He was so insightful, we should all pray for a little measure of his spirit in our own lives.

          More great study of this letter to the Galatians ahead, so be sure to come back and share a while again, right here at Daily Bread.
