Galatians 2:14 – Correcting Conduct that Contradicts the Gospel

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 19:1‐21:17, Galatians 2:1‐16, Psalm 59:1‐17, Proverbs 23:13‐14

Context: When Peter camp to Antioch, Paul “opposed him to his face,” because he separated himself from the Gentiles while they ate when other Jews were present.

Galatians 2:14 – But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas (Peter) before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”

Observations:

  • When Paul saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel
  • He said…

Apply: I need to be ready to speak truth when I see Christians whose conduct is not in step with the truth of the gospel.  In addition, I must pursue other Christians who will speak truth to me when they see my conduct contradict the gospel.

Do you have Pauls in your life who will tell you when your conduct is not in line with the truth of the gospel?
