Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas,

But even Titus, who was with me, p was not forced to be circumcised,

so that u the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.

Paul went to Jerusalem, according to God's will, to explain his gospel to the Gentiles to the pillars so that his ministry would not be in vain.
Titus wasn't forced to be circumcised, because even though some false brothers tried to enslave believers, he wanted to preserve the gospel for the Galatians.
Instead, rather than adding anything to his gospel, when the pillars perceived God's will and grace on Paul, they gave their blessing to Paul's ministry to the Gentiles.
