Straight from God

Sermon text - Galatians 1:11-26
Paul's gospel not invented or inherited, but from God

John 1:12-13
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

The gospel is from God, and so is this Lord’s Supper. We did not make this up ourselves. Such a thing is unlikely to enter our heads - passing bits of bread and wine around. We did not just inherit this from some Medieval tradition that we thoughtlessly continue. Jesus Himself told His disciples to do this to proclaim His death, to remember Him. We don’t boast in coming to this table. We glorify God who called us here. He is the center; not our choices. “Every good and perfect gift comes down to us from the Father of lights. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth.”
