The church in Galatia faced a choice between two "gospels" - two ways of approaching a relationship with God, two ways of looking at life. On one side were the teachers who told these young Christians that their performance mattered. To be right with God, they needed to trust Christ... but they also needed their own efforts. On the other side was the church-planting apostle, Paul. He said that the only performance that mattered was Christ's: His life, death and resurrection. Which "gospel" they relied on really mattered. In these studies, Paul will show us how our problems in the Christian life stem from forgetting or failing to live by that gospel.
In 2 Corinthians we find a pathway to Jesus-like living. Paul calls us to align our hearts and lives with the way of the Savior and offer authentic love, amazing grace, extravagant generosity, and humble service. As we do this, we are shaped into the image of Jesus.
