๐Ÿ‘‘ So Soon Fallen

How highly the Galatian believers had esteemed Paul; how heartily they had loved him when he had first come to them proclaiming grace! The Apostle recalls it in Galatians 4:13-15:

โ€œYe know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

โ€œAnd my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

โ€œWhere is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me.โ€

How happy in grace, how thoroughly blessed, had the Galatian Christians been โ€” when Paul was with them! But let the Apostle turn his back, as it were; let the legalizers come courting on the morrow and suddenly these same believers were ready to go back under the Law. โ€œSo soonโ€ had they fallen from grace! The Apostle was dumbfounded! โ€œI marvel,โ€ he says, โ€œthat ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospelโ€ (Gal. 1:6).

How unspeakably sad! And how natural that, hearing the news, the Apostle should sit down immediately to write them this urgent epistle, in large letters.

The temptations to โ€œfall from graceโ€ are as great today as they ever were. It would be well, therefore, to read this letter to the Galatians often so that we might be among those who โ€œstand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us freeโ€ (Gal. 5:1). source
