‘I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.’ Galatians 1:6-9
Don’t be distracted. You know you have been called into and by the grace of Christ. Stay focused on that and don’t let yourself be detracted. There are many priorities and many callings, but stay focused.
Many people will teach many things but stay focused on the gospel of Christ and the grace of Christ. People are generating their own messages and their own priorities but keep yours on Christ and Christ alone. There is a curse connected to those who promote and present another gospel that is not the gospel of grace in Christ. Be careful not to fall into that gospel.
‘Lord, it’s only grace that found me & its grace that will keep me. I refuse to let those who pervert the gospel trouble me. You are enough for me & I will not slide into the curse of peddling a new message, even if it’s more exciting. Keep me focus on you & your grace, Lord. Amen’
