Have you ever wondered whether you belong to God? Have you ever wondered if you matter to Him? About 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul wrote a letter that was addressed “to the churches in Galatia.” There is no delicate way of putting this: it’s an angry, passionate letter. Evidently, there had been some in the church who had been making recent converts to the faith uneasy, telling them that unless they play by their rules, they wouldn’t ever truly belong to God.
Paul writes this letter to put things straight. He makes it quite clear that the good news to all people is that Jesus is calling all of us into one family.
