Today's Passage: Galatians 1:11-21
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank you LORD for always being ready to listen to us.
We want to listen to You in this reading.
Help us do that.
In Your name we pray
11. Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that
the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning.
12. I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me.
Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.
13. You know what I was like when I followed the Jewish religion ⏤
how I violently persecuted God's church. I did my best to destroy it.
14. I was far ahead of my fellow Jews in my zeal for the traditions of my ancestors.
15. But even before I was born, God chose me and
called me by his marvelous grace. Then it pleased him
16. to reveal his Son to me so that I would proclaim
the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles.
When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.
17. Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to consult with those
who were apostles before I was. Instead, I went away to Arabia
and later I returned to the city of Damascus.
18. Then three years later I went to Jerusalem to get to know Peter,
and I stayed with him for fifteen days.
19. The only other apostle I met at that time was James, the Lord's brother.
20. I declare before God that what I am writing to you is not a lie.
21. After that visit I went north into the provinces of Syria and Cilicia.
22. And still the Christians in the churches in Judea didn't know me personally.
23. All they knew was that people were saying,
"The one who used to persecute us is now preaching the very faith he tried to destroy!"
24. And they praised God because of me.
