The book of Galatians is all about the gospel! In his letter to the church in Galatia, Paul eagerly defends the gospel of Christ against the anti-gospel message of those who say you need to add to the finished work of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Galatians serves as a strong defense against the idea that we need to add works for salvation. We are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Since we have life by Him, we are to live by and walk-in Him as we mirror the character of our God.
Jesus is our righteousness. Jesus is our freedom. Jesus is our life. This is the gospel. This is the message of Galatians.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Hypocrisy = Wrong behavior + Right belief. But what if the "hypocrite" label isn't reserved for a specific group of people? What is hypocrisy is a struggle that's way more widespread than we might assume? This week, we'll be looking into how one of the leaders in the early Church started behaving hypocritically and how another leader decided to step up & call him on it.

Anytime we add to the Gospel, we rob it of the freedom it's meant to bring. Even adding great things can easily make the good news of Jesus about us and not Jesus. The gospel plus anything means we're still trying to earn God's love, favor, and forgiveness. In the book of Galatians, Paul is addressing this issue head on and pleading with them to be a unified church that believes the gospel + nothing = everything.

The hope held out by the good news of Jesus is that you can have a former life. The offer of the gospel is that no matter what you are dealing with today that God will help you grow past that tomorrow. Often people will say, “If God loves me just the way I am, why would He ask me to change?” The call to change is actually rooted in and flows out of the Love of God.

Why did Jesus have to die? Why couldn’t God have just forgiven us? The answer is: Death is the engine of life. When Jesus died on the cross, He was acting in accordance with the way things are and with the way our world already works.
