Little life or big freedom
Reading Galatians 2:11-3:! again today it occured to me again how Peter's way is concerned with small things like 'I don't want to sin here' and 'What will people think of me?'. These questions are concerned with details and the self and denies the cross. Paul's gospel answer draws Peter and the Galatians and us to the public portrayal of Christ crucified in the apostolic preaching. It's big and looks away from self and makes much of what Jesus did. The gospel is simply bigger and better.
