Galatians 1:4 Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live.‭‭

Paul got right to the point for the introduction to this letter. It seems a little straightforward to present the Gospel in the 4th verse, doesn’t it???? I don’t think so. Paul knew that–if the Galatians needed to understand anything–this was it! Jesus died for us, and it was NOT an afterthought. It was in the plan all along.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
