Calling Galatians

Divinely Focused

clip_image002Paul the Apostle understood his calling to be from and through God and not men. “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead ;)” Galatians 1:1

In our text, Paul says his calling was not of or by man, in the Greek the first term “of” focuses on the idea of coming from someone else, the second “by” is more of a channel through which a thing occurs. Paul then is saying his calling to preach Christ among the Gentiles did not come from men nor is it accomplished through the enablement of men.

Paul ministered spiritual truth by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, and the means that God used to enable Paul was the resurrection from the dead.

The Christian is one alive from the dead (dead in sins and trespasses) alive by union with Jesus Christ in His resurrection and victory over sin.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
