"A Grave Situation" In verses 6-7 Paul states the primary purpose for writing this letter. He is astonished! This is as strong of a word as he could use for how amazed he was that they were actually leaving God. They were not leaving a teaching or a religion, but they were leaving God Himself! They were leaving the God who called them in the grace of Christ! It is interestesting to note that Paul went directly from his salutation to the problem/rebuke. He did not give a prayer of thanksgiving here as was his normal custom in his letters. Paul puts some shock value in his words by saying that they are turning to a "different" gospel, but he quickly says that there is not another gospel. But there are "troublers" who are distorting the true gospel. What should happen to these people who are distorting the gospel? In verses 8 and 9 he shows the seriousness of the matter. To pronounce that someone be accursed is no small matter. Paul is serious to the uttermost. V. 10 - Why is Paul so serious and not concerned about what they think? Because he is serving the Lord and not interested in pleasing man. Possible Outline: I. I am Astonished ! A. That you are leaving God! B. That you are leaving God for "another" gospel! C. There is not "another" gospel, but there are "troublers" distorting the gospel! II. Let the troublers be Accursed ! A. They distort what Paul preached to them B. They distort the gospel that the Galatians received B. The troublers are to be accursed! III. I am not Ashamed ! A. I am not seeking the approval of man! B. If I was seeking man's approval I would not be a servant of the Lord! What should we take away from this? We should feel the gravity of the situation Paul is talking about here. His children in the Lord are leaving the Lord! Here we see Paul's anxiety. Yes, Paul does get anxious, but only in regards to his children in the Lord remaining in the Lord and not leaving Him. Here we see a true pastoral heart! He is not concerned about anything but making sure they are grounded in the true gospel and not led astray to a distorted gospel. If there is anything we are to be earnest about is the gospel and keeping the gospel from being distorted. Paul saw protecting the purity of the gospel as pleasing to the Lord. What is the true gospel? We shall soon see. How are the troublers distorting the true gospel? That will be coming later as well.
