Thesis:The "private" presentation of the Gospel acknowledges the absolute primacy of "faith" in the relationship that God offers us.

Introduction:Our studies of Galatians thus far have yielded this most fundamental truth: salvation is by grace through faith. In chapter one, the most compelling argument for this truth of the Gospel is Paul's radical transformation because of "faith" in a message he once considered such an absolute heresy that he felt it was a capital crime to promote it. We saw this in the loop that began in 1:13-14 and ended in 1:23-24. That Paul begins his presentation of the "proof" of his apostleship this way is strong evidence that he considered the way the Truth affects the behavior of people as a kind of bottom line reality. What good is a "Gospel" that leaves people unmotivated, unloving, and unchanged?

This evening we are going to look a bit further into this reality of faith's impact upon the human heart and mind.
