Paul ends his letter to the Galatian church with an encouragement to do good; particularly to carry one another’s burdens. We still need to hear that encouragement today.
We can believe the lie that everything depends on us. Sometimes we need reminding to simply trust in the Father who holds all things in His hands.
The temptation to compare yourself with someone else has always been part of a diverse church community. Thankfully Paul reminds us that God sees us all in the same way; simply as his children and that means we are free to be ourselves.
The past can be hard to shake off but God calls us to a bigger future in which our identity is in Christ alone.
We may be tempted to try hard to earn the approval of those we respect, including God. Paul reminds us of the true gospel which tells us we don’t need to.
The early church asked itself a question that still echoes through the centuries: ‘Am I good enough?’ Paul’s letter to the Galatian church responds definitively to that question.
