DAILY E-VOTIONS BY PASTOR DOUG STOWE
Monday, June 17th: I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ (NIV Galatians 1:11-12).
Why is Paul so insistent that his Gospel is not of mere human origin? Two reasons present themselves: first, his opponents were likely insisting it was. You can imagine the conversation, “Oh, that Paul, he has this idea that you don’t need Moses anymore, but that’s just his idea. He made that up.” Second, he wants what every truly evangelical pastor wants for his congregation: he wants them to have certainty that God’s mercy and love don’t depend on anything except God’s own unchanging character.
That’s the beauty of grace, of God’s free gift of forgiveness—it doesn’t depend on anything in us. We don’t do anything to earn it or to deserve. And that Gospel message is not of human origin. Humans get things wrong. Humans have to re-think and adjust. Humans have to account for changing circumstances. But the Good News of God’s grace in Jesus—that’s His idea; it doesn’t change; and we can count on it.
