Ryan Kron is an intern at Mission Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Saint Paul, Minnesota, during the summer of 2005. This sermon, "Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles" (preached 7-10-2005) is Ryan's first in a series that he is preaching on Galatians.
Ryan has just completed his second year at Westminster Seminary California, and is interested in pastoring a church in the OPC or URCNA after he graduates next year.
Below is the sermon text (Galatians 1:10-17):
10For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
11 For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel. 12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. 14 And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace, 16 was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone; 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.
