Galatians 1:1-3 – Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: 3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
When one is called, it has to be a call from God. Here Paul is giving insight of the cross and the resurrection. The cross is manifested here for us to see that everything is made possible by the cross of Christ. This means that Paul did not submit to authority of his apostleship to men; neither was it conferred on Him by man.
What I want to emphasize is the importance of the cross and all the manifestation that we have in the spirit world comes from the cross and the cross of Christ is the new covenant.
Verse 3 lets us know that grace and peace come from the Father, made possible by the Cross and from our Lord Jesus Christ who made it all possible.
Here in these three verses the Apostle Paul is telling us: where his Apostleship came from, that grace and peace come from the Father, and it is through our understanding that all graces comes from the cross of Christ.
May your life be more blessed as you understand the works of the cross in your life!
