Scripture: Galatians 2:11-21
In Galatians 2:11-21 we get an example of the value of correction. Paul had to correct Peter and bring him back to faith. Galatians 2:11-14 says, “Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.” Paul observed Peter slipping back into Phariseeism. How many friends do we have more at home in Phariseeism than in the Holy Spirit? Even Barnabas was deceived. So we see the power of correction and we begin to understand why this path of surrender is so very, very important. It is a life or death path and these choices to overcome that have been bought and paid for are a real blessing. We have an anointing from God to help us surrender to the Holy Spirit, conquering the giants! Jesus overcame them…all of them and the anointing of the Holy Spirit and His grace empowers us to walk this surrender out. It is our inheritance of victory.
