Singing with Inspiration – 9: Paul’s Pastoral Appeal

The introduction to our lesson study for this week shows that Paul appeals to the Galatians in a broad sense which “shows just how important correct doctrine is.” There are two hymns that come to mind with this theme:
Hymn 203, “This is the Three-Fold Truth” and
Hymn 612 “Onward, Christian Soldiers” and we could go back to the little-used hymn used in Lesson 7,
Hymn 277, “For Your Holy Book, We Thank You”.

“The Heart of Paul” in Galations 4:12 urges us to “become as I am” –
Hymn 313 or 314, “Just as I Am”. Monday’s lesson mirror’s this thought also. Paul continues working hard, resulting in Galations 4:19 giving us
Hymn 375, “Work, for the Night Is coming”.

This thought flows on into Tuesday’s lesson where “Paul wanted the Galatians to become like him in his complete faith and confidence in the all-sufficiency of Christ for salvation”, and “to preach the gospel to both Jews and Gentiles”
Hymn 378, Go, Preach My Gospel”. Paul’s preaching continues in Wednesday’s lesson.

Thursday’s study will return to
Hymn 203, “This is the Three-Fold Truth” and
Hymn 378, Go, Preach My Gospel”. 

May the Lord bless you and keep you,
May the Lord make His face to shine upon,
And be gracious unto you.
