Notes: Valor: Do not let that be us!
There is no power on this planet that is as powerful as the Gospel.
Romans 1:16 NKJV
 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
Acts 1:8 NKJV
 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
The Gospel is powered by the Holy Spirit.
We all receive the gospel by people telling us.
Paul's whole mission was that people would know and share the gospel.
Paul was willing to give up his own salvation just to be able to share the gospel.
Galatians 1:1-10 NKJV
 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead),  and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:  Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,  who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,  to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.  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.  For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
The book of Galatians is a book about the gospel. It explains the gospel, wha it is and what it is all about.
Galatians 1:3-5 NKJV
 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,  who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,  to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
This is all Gods will, Paul is writing to convey the teachings of God.
Paul is clearing up the fact that there is no other gospel. That no one should follow any other teachings.
Judiazers were attacking Pauls credentials because they were attacking the power of the Gospel.
Galatians 1:6 NKJV
 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
Galatians 3:1 NKJV
 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?
Paul does not tolerate people messing with the true gospel. Paul wants the power of God in the churches he planted.
There are three mistakes we see in this writing that we also can make.
1. We make the mistake of adding to the gospel.
Many of us change from the one who saved us to the actions of an outward appearance of righteousness.
Paul is calling the Galatians out on leaving Jesus out of their faith.
If we study but don't grow closer to Jesus then we are deserting Him for our works.
We don't do our homework to impress our group leader, but to grow closer to Jesus.
2. We use the Gospel to cover us on sins we do after we are saved. (Sinning more just so grace may abound... Is not acceptable)
Do not take advantage of the Gospel. It needs to invade your life, not cover you tracks.
3. We can misunderstand the gospel.
It's not just about good morals and conveying comfort it is so much more.
The gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The gospel is the greatest news you will ever hear. You need to focus on that.
The gospel is the power of God to deliver salvation and that is all about Christ.
If you can approach the gospel and not think about Jesus, then you are doing it wrong.
Do not let that be you!
