The Christian Life Is Impossible

Last week we looked at Gal. 1:10. This week we are going to remain in Gal. 1: and look at verses 11 and 12
Galatians 1:11-12 - reads 11I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. 12I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
So what can we learn from these verses?
A. The Christian faith and the gospel comes from God. I heard this preacher once say the Christian life isn't hard apart from Jesus Christ no the Christian life is impossible without having Jesus in your life. Where there is no Jesus there is no Christian life you can have a religious good moral life but not a Christian life apart from Jesus. Today there are a lot of man made gospels. What is a man made gospel anything that teaches that salvation comes through something or someone else besides the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. There are some including some churches that teach salvation comes through a church or doing good works. Eph. 2:8-9 It is by grace you have been saved through faith not by works so no one can boast.
B. another thing we can learn from these verses the key to somebody getting saved is the Holy Spirit of God showing them Jesus. We can teach people all the correct doctrine all the best church programs in the world but if God’s spirit doesn’t show one that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. The key to the Christian life is Jesus.
