ImmerseMessiah NLT - Page 179



G A L AT I A N S
This 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.
All the brothers and sisters here join me in sending this letter to the
churches of Galatia.
May God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
Jesus 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. All glory to God forever
and ever! Amen.
I 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 News but is not the Good News at all.
You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning
Christ.
Let 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. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches
any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be
cursed.
Obviously, 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.
Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it
by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.
