Daily Bible Reading Plan

If you’re looking for some focus in you daily devotions, try following along with us in our daily Bible readings.  We’ve been reading through various books of the New Testament 2-3 chapters each day.  So far we’ve covered the four Gospels and the book of Acts.  Now it’s time to tackle “Go Eat PopCorn”, or Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians.  You can find this reading plan at www.youversion.com (https://www.youversion.com/reading-plans/93-galatians) or on the Bible app on your smartphone.
Today’s installment of our daily Bible reading plan is Galatians 1&2.  The book of Galatians was originally a letter written by Paul.  This letter was for the church located in Galatia, which today would be in central Turkey.  Paul had brought the gospel to Galatia, which was a Gentile (non-Jewish people) area.  Since his original visit Jewish teachers from Jerusalem had traveled to Galatia and began to teach that in order for a Gentile to be a Christian, he would have to hold to Mosaic Law.  This goes against Paul’s teaching that the only requirement to become a Christian was belief in Jesus Christ as your Savior.  This letter was written largely to combat this thought that there was any other requirements to becoming a Christian.  As a result of this focus, this letter became a major tool in the Protestant Reformation.
