The apostle Paul writes to the Galatian Christians about the gospel of Jesus Christ. He questioned why they have left the true gospel for a false gospel. He has taught them that to turn back to the Law of Moses is to go back to immaturity and to leave the faith in Jesus altogether. Now Paul’s message becomes very personal. Paul describes what he is doing with these Christians as “the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you” (4:19). This is the goal that Paul desired for these Christians. He would continue to work with them, correct them, and teach them until Christ was formed in them. So what did they need to know and what did they need to do in order that Christ would be formed in them? When we learn this then we can learn how Christ can be formed in us.
