Galatians 4:12-20 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
12 Brothers and sisters, I beg you to become like me. After all, I became like you were. You didn't do anything wrong to me. 13 You know that the first time I brought you the Good News I was ill. 14 Even though my illness was difficult for you, you didn't despise or reject me. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were God's messenger or Christ Jesus himself. 15 What happened to your positive attitude? It's a fact that if it had been possible, you would have torn out your eyes and given them to me. 16 Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth? 17 These people [who distort the Good News] are devoted to you, but not in a good way. They don't want you to associate with me so that you will be devoted only to them. 18 (Devotion to a good cause is always good, even when I'm not with you.) 19 My children, I am suffering birth pains for you again until Christ is formed in you. 20 I wish I were with you right now so that I could change the tone of my voice. I'm completely puzzled by what you've done!
