STIMULATE
** As the unsaved around us walk through their daily lives, what are some of the common drives or motivations that form their attitudes and actions?

1) Hunger 2) Fear 3) Pleasure 4) Greed 5) Popularity 6) Prestige or Fame

MOTIVATE
** As Christians, how are we to be different? What should be the one compelling force behind all that we think, say and do? To learn the answer to that question, please join me in Paul's letter to the Galatians. Today we are starting a study of God's Word, which will last some six or seven months. This study will teach us the central theme of the entire New Testament; that true freedom for mankind comes only through a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We are priveleged to see the apostle Paul condense all that truth into this masterpiece, his letter to the churches in the region of Galatia. Over the next month we will see in chapter one:

THE AUTHORITY OF GOD - Verses 1-5
THE TRUTH OF GOD - Verses 6-10
THE CALL OF GOD - Verses 11-17
THE LEADING OF GOD - Verses 18-24

Let's look at our passage for today. Read text: (V.1-5)                              Opening Prayer

THE AUTHORITY OF GOD

INVESTIGATE
** Before we begin our passage for today, let's share some important background information regarding this marvelous letter. To whom was this letter written?

"...to the churches of Galatia" (V.2) (Located in the Southern Region)

** Where was that?

East of Ephesus, in Asia Minor, it was an area that in 278 B.C. had been conquered by the Gauls. They were a warrior type of people and had control of that area for 2-1/2 centuries.
