The Pastors Heart When Sheep Wander (Galatians 4:12-20)Pastor Dennis, September 24, 2017
Part of the Exposition of Galatians series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
There is often pain in a Pastor's life as he ministers to the flock. At times the sheep wander and in Galatians, Paul, the apostle, expresses his pain at the departure of the believers there from the truth he taught them. This message covers Paul's initial warm reception when he came to Galatia, his rejection by the Galatians, and his perplexity at the believers actions.

12Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all. 13Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first. 14And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 15Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. 16Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? 17They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. 18But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you. 19My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, 20I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you. (KJV)
