God’s Word is from Him – Not Us

Galatians 2:8 – For He [God] who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles. Paul writes a letter to the church in Galatia encouraging them towards Christ-likeness and reminding them he has been chosen by God. He did not want the church in Galatia to think the message he proclaimed was from him. No, the message Paul relays to the church in Galatia is from God. The Gospel

Mark 14:3 – And while Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over His head. In John 11, we see the woman is Mary, the sister to Martha and Lazarus. This moment in history seems to be lost in our hearts and minds. We must look deeper
