Paul, an apostle … and all the brothers and sisters with me. To the churches in Galatia: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:1-3

Now Paul delights in the support of brothers and sisters in the Lord who are his companions in the work, and members of the first churches he saw planted. He writes for their need of recovery to the teaching to which they had been delivered. He writes to encourage disciples to adhere to the doctrines they had been taught, – a common theme for Paul -But thanks be to God …you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance (Rom.6:17).
