Book of Galatians

Day 9

READ Galatians 2:1-5
Then after fourteen years, I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also. I went in response to a revelation and, meeting privately with those esteemed as leaders, I presented to them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles. I wanted to be sure I was not running and had not been running my race in vain. Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek. This matter arose because some false believers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves. We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.

In these verses, Paul recounts his visit to Jerusalem to meet with the apostles, particularly to present the gospel he had been preaching among the Gentiles. He emphasizes the importance of maintaining the truth of the gospel and resisting false teachings. Paul’s commitment to upholding the integrity of the gospel message serves as an example for believers today.

Questions to ponder:

  • Consider the importance of accountability and mutual support among believers. How can we encourage one another to stand firm in the truth of the gospel?
  • Reflect on any false teachings or pressures you may face that threaten to distort the gospel message. How can you resist these influences and remain faithful to the truth?
