Liberty starts when you own your past.
The acceptance of Jesus Christ as our forgiving Savior is also a call to be his servant.
- Galatians 1:15-17 Paul’s assignment was different than God’s assignment to the other 12.
Two truths from Galatians 1:15-17:
a. God had a plan for Saul of Tarsus
b. Paul knew he was chosen.
- Galatians 1:18-24 Three years later to Jerusalem
