Jesus has rescued me from this evil world I’m in by offering himself as a sacrifice for my missing God’s goal for my life. That is good news. That is stunning in the scope of what that does in my life.
That is the kind of news that a loving Father can deliver. And that is the kind of Father we have. We have been rescued. Jesus did it for us.
God has a plan for us. It is a great plan. That plan starts with our rescue. That is not the end. That is the beginning.
We all need to have that experience. We need it every day.
I, Paul, and my companions in faith here, send greetings to the Galatian churches. My authority for writing to you does not come from any popular vote of the people, nor does it come through the appointment of some human higher-up. It comes directly from Jesus the Messiah and God the Father, who raised him from the dead. I’m God-commissioned. So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace! We know the meaning of those words because Jesus Christ rescued us from this evil world we’re in by offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins. God’s plan is that we all experience that rescue. Glory to God forever! Oh, yes!
