True Control

True ControlGalatians 1:6-7 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Although God used the instrument of Paul to write these words, they still come from Him. God marvels that people would so quickly abandon the liberty and grace that is provided in a relationship with the Lord Jesus.  Why would someone want to take that which is free and throw it away for something which is earned?

It is an issue of control.  Man likes to have control of his own destiny.  Every endeavor that man has created has been to take control of his destiny from God.  Evolution, Big Bang and Relativity are a few.  But there are even more dangerous ones.  They are the ones that pervert the gospel of Christ.

Man has his definition of “perverts” and God has His.  A pervert to God is someone who takes the Word of God and changes it.  If you find yourself in a religion that is perverting the Word of God, GET OUT!  God connects that with people who are trying to take you away from the grace that He freely offers and try to put you in control of your own destiny.

The only true control of your own destiny is to put your life in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ.
