day no. 13,056: the Gospel first and before all other things

Galatians 1:3-5

3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Paul begins a letter he knows is going to be stern and difficult the same way he always does: with the Gospel.

I love the book of Galatians. I love how pastoral and professorial Paul is in fleshing out the theology and doctrine of the Gospel in this letter. You can feel the passion of Paul in his words and the superlative nature of this charge given to the church at Galatia.

I love it.

One of my favorite books.
