The human acceptance we long for often comes only if we are attractive, smart, wealthy or powerful. And God's standards seem even higher. We think we must work harder, live better, pray longer and witness to more people to get on God's good side. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul shows us the true source of our acceptance--Jesus Christ.

After nearly nineteen years as the publisher of InterVarsity Press, Bob Fryling has announced that he will be retiring in June 2016.
