Paul spent much of his letter to the churches of Galatia encouraging them to think right! The problem that they were experiencing was that people had come from Jerusalem to make the Galatian Christians into Jewish Christians. They called these people “Judaizers.” These Judaizers wanted all Christians to also become Jewish in culture and practice by following God’s law of the Old Testament. In response, Paul thunders with the words of God that the people who accepted Jesus Christ as their LORD, in faith,
needed to do nothing more! They were accepted. To be a Christian meant to follow Jesus, not to convert to Judaism and follow Jesus. This passage is a fascinating read, since many today fall into the same trap. There is nothing we can do to make ourselves right with God – Jesus Christ did all the work. We must come to Him in faith!
