Defend (Galatians 2:1-21)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “defend.” This word can be used a ton of different ways, but I would like to capitalize on the way Paul uses it here in Galatians. Paul had been doing ministry for like 14 years. Yet he still found himself defending both himself and the faith. He was laborious and meticulous in this dealing with the Gospel and his excitement for Christ’s love for others. He was definitely always on the lookout for ways to express his love for JC and the opportunity for others to follow the Word.

“And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.”
~Galatians 2:2

Each of us have opportunities daily to share our faith. Peeps will be looking at you and the way you act and live. At times it could seem unfair; I mean aren’t you just a regular person like everyone else? Yes and no. As a believer representing our God it is your duty and privilege to wear the faith with pride, as a witness for JC. My prayer for you this morning is that you defend the Gospel, first with your actions and then with your voice. This year is underway and I am excited to see how God will use you to manifest his Word this year.

Praying for you,
