Galatians 1:8

 
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:8

Paul was amazed by the Galatians who were saved but would then turn from the true Gospel to another. Others would try to come in and preach to them that in order to be saved, they had to keep the law and keep all of the religious stuff. Paul, at the beginning of the letter, makes it clear and simple by telling them that Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. Now if you hear anything different from us or anyone, even if they claim to be an angel, let them be accursed or, in other words, let them be cursed.

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. No one can tell you differently. If they try to pervert the gospel by telling you otherwise, they are setting themselves up for destruction. We can look around today at the world's religions that require you to work towards your salvation but Paul reminds us that there is only one gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ who gave Himself for our sins. Peter would tell us, "That Christ also suffered once for sins, the just (Him) for the unjust (us) that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18). If today you are trying to work your way to heaven or earn your salvation because you feel that you don’t measure up, remember it’s all been paid for.
