Generosity. It’s why we are here. It’s who we are. It’s what we do.
We give because God gave. We are grateful for the life that has been given to us. So we give back to our families, our community and our world.
Having established the unique content of the gospel (the message of salvation by grace through faith), Paul begins to defend the unique source of the gospel. Paul highlights the divine origin of the gospel by sharing how it was communicated to him. The fact that it came directly to Paul from God means he could not have made it up.
In Gal 1:11-24 Paul lays out a historical narrative of how he came to receive the gospel, but this section offers more than simply the truth of the gospel. By telling his story, Paul shows the power of the gospel to radically transform even the greatest of sinners. Paul shares his story to explain that the divine origin of the gospel is demonstrated through life transformation.
This first chapter of Galatians confronts our doubts about the gospel in a profound way. The gospel of Jesus Christ is trustworthy because it is a message from God Himself and demonstrated through a long history of life transformation around the world, part of which includes the story of Paul.
