We as individuals have so many influences on us in our life. As mothers and fathers, we have to guard our families because of all the influences in our lives that mold us into who we are. Some of the influences can be good and some of them can be bad. A lot of our speech patterns and ways we think come from our families are the regions we live in. Being from the North and the South, I’m all mixed up in the way I think. Sometimes I will say, “Y’all” and sometimes I will say, “You guys.” I’ll always say, “Pop” – I’ll never say “Coke.” But, where we live sometimes determines a lot about who we are and our personalities.
This morning we’ll see that there are enemies that want to influence the family of God. In Galatians 1, Paul tells us to watch out for those who might be enemies of the family of God.
