Galatians Devotional 16

You like many Christians may experience peer pressure. The Apostle Peter did. “But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For prior to the coming of certain men from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, fearing the party of the circumcision. The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy” (Gal 2:11-13). The fear of what others may think of you or condemn you for your liberty in Christ is exactly what Peter was feeling, but could not be left unaddressed.
