APOSTOLE’S LETTER

Galatians 1:3-10

3

Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,

4

who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

5

to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

6

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,

7

which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

8

But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

9

As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

10

For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

=================================================

Matthew 9:9-13 (Apostle)

9

As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him.

10

Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples.

11

And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12

When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.

13

But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.
