Read Galatians 1:1 through 3:29
The apostle Paul wrote the letter we know as Galatians. He sent it to people struggling to find a balance of law and grace. They knew about laws and rules. They knew about consequences and punishment. They knew about guidelines and expectations.
Paul’s words reminded those Christians that the supervision was not controlled by mere rules. God was their protector.
Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian (Galatians 3:25).
Faith had come to the Galatians, but, as often happens, they battled a desire to return to portions of their legalistic structure. They weren’t sure grace was enough.
Like the original readers, many people in today’s culture struggle to grasp God’s love and freedom.
Our supervision comes from a Heavenly Father who seeks to bring healing and peace to His people, not condemnation or long lists of rules. God guides with gentle guidance.
Prayer Suggestion: Thank God for receiving you into His family and for loving you as a caring Father.
