Book of Galatians

Day 11

READ Galatians 2:11-13
When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group. The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray.

In these verses, Paul recounts a confrontation with Peter in Antioch over Peter’s inconsistency in behavior regarding the Gentile believers. Paul rebukes Peter for his hypocrisy, emphasizing the importance of integrity and consistency in living out the gospel message.

Questions to ponder:

  • Reflect on the significance of Paul’s confrontation with Peter. How does this interaction demonstrate the importance of accountability within the body of Christ?
  • Consider the implications of Peter’s inconsistency in behavior for the witness of the church. How can our actions either reinforce or undermine the credibility of the gospel message?
  • Reflect on any areas of inconsistency in your own life. How can you align your actions more closely with the truth of the gospel?
