Their Love for Paul

The Galatians loved Paul. They listened to him. They welcomed him. They received his preaching. When they begin to turn to another gospel, Paul reminds them how, if it were possible, they would have "plucked out their own eyes and given them" to Paul (Galatians 4:11-15).

This shows their deep affection for their pastor. But it's not just their love for him. What moves them is also their love for others. Christians want others to hear the good news of the forgiveness of sins. The Galatians desired not only what was good for their pastor, but also that their pastor be able to continue in his work.
