Book of Galatians

Day 26

READ Galatians 4:17-20
Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them. It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you. My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you, how I wish I could be with you now and change my tone, because I am perplexed about you!

In these verses, Paul confronts the false teachers who were seeking to influence the Galatians and lead them astray from the truth of the gospel. He exposes their motives and urges the Galatians not to be misled by their deceptive tactics. Paul expresses his desire for Christ to be formed in them and for them to return to the truth of the gospel.

Questions to ponder:

  • Reflect on the danger of being misled by false teachers. How does this challenge you to discern truth from deception in your own life?
  • Take some time to pray and ask God to protect you from false teachings and to help Christ be formed in you more fully.
