New Living Translation

Greetings from Paul

1This letter is from Paul, an apostle. I was not appointed by any group of people or any human authority, but by Jesus Christ himself and by God the Father, who raised Jesus from the dead.G3972G652G3756G575G444G3761G1223G444G235G1223G2424G5547G2532G2316G3962G3588G1453G846G1537G3498 2All the brothers and sisters here join me in sending this letter to the churches of Galatia.G2532G3956G80G4862G1698G1577G1053 3May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.G5485G5213G2532G1515G575G2316G3962G2532G2257G2962G2424G5547 4Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live.G3588G1325G1438G5228G2257G266G3704G1807G2248G1537G1764G4190G165G2596G2307G2316G2532G2257G3962 5All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.G3739G1391G1519G165G165G281

There Is Only One Good News

6I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good NewsG2296G3754G3346G3779G5030G3346G575G2564G5209G1722G5485G5547G1519G2087G2098 7but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.G3739G2076G3756G243G1526G5100G1508G5015G5209G2532G2309G3344G2098G5547 8Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you.G235G2532G1437G2249G2228G32G1537G3772G2097G5213G3844G3739G2097G5213G2077G331 9I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.G5613G4280G2532G3004G737G3825G1536G2097G3844G2097G5209G3844G3739G3880G2077G331 10Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.G1063G3982G737G3982G444G2228G2316G2228G2212G700G444G1063G1487G700G2089G700G444G302G3756G2252G1401G5547

Paul’s Message Comes from Christ

11Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning.G1161G1107G5213G80G3754G2098G3588G2097G5259G1700G2076G3756G2596G444 12I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.G1063G1473G3761G3880G846G3844G444G3777G1321G235G1223G602G2424G5547 13You know what I was like when I followed the Jewish religion—how I violently persecuted God’s church. I did my best to destroy it.G1063G191G1699G391G4218G1722G2454G3754G2596G5236G1377G1577G2316G2532G4199G846 14I was far ahead of my fellow Jews in my zeal for the traditions of my ancestors.G2532G4298G1722G2454G5228G4183G4915G1722G3450G1085G5225G4056G2207G3862G3450G3967 15But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased himG1161G3753G2106G2316G3588G873G3165G1537G3450G3384G2836G2532G2564G1223G846G5485 16to reveal his Son to me so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.G601G846G5207G1722G1698G2443G2097G846G1722G1484G2112G4323G3756G4561G2532G129 17Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to consult with those who were apostles before I was. Instead, I went away into Arabia, and later I returned to the city of Damascus.G3761G424G1519G2414G4314G652G4253G1700G235G565G1519G688G2532G5290G3825G1519G1154 18Then three years later I went to Jerusalem to get to know Peter, and I stayed with him for fifteen days.G1899G3326G5140G2094G424G1519G2414G2477G4074G2532G1961G4314G846G1178G2250 19The only other apostle I met at that time was James, the Lord’s brother.G1161G2087G652G1492G3756G1508G2385G2962G80 20I declare before God that what I am writing to you is not a lie.G1161G3739G1125G5213G2400G1799G2316G3754G5574G3756 21After that visit I went north into the provinces of Syria and Cilicia.G1899G2064G1519G2824G4947G2532G2791 22And still the Christians in the churches in Judea didn’t know me personally.G1161G2252G50G4383G1577G2449G3588G1722G5547 23All they knew was that people were saying, “The one who used to persecute us is now preaching the very faith he tried to destroy!”G1161G2258G191G3440G3754G1377G2248G4218G3568G2097G4102G3739G4218G4199 24And they praised God because of me.G2532G1392G2316G1722G1698
