Gal. 1:18-24 “God Changes Lives for His Glory”

Gal. 1:18-24 "God Changes Lives for His Glory"

Galatians 1:18-24 As Paul reinforces that God is the Source of the gospel, I can’t help but see in this passage how it’s not the people who are so important here, but how God had changed their lives because of their faith in the risen Savior. Yes Peter was important: but not because of who […]

Gal. 1:1-5 "The Gospel of Grace and Peace"
