10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. 
This has been a pull among many men over the centuries. Do they try to preach to please man, or do they seek after the glory of God, and disregard man’s opinion? Here Paul is under attack by his opponents in Galatia for the gospel he preached. One of the said charges is they claimed Paul preached an easy gospel, not requiring circumcision or obedience to Sabbath laws and dietary restrictions. Paul preached only faith in Jesus as the Messiah. The Galatians were accustomed to the traditional laws of the Jews and accused Paul of distorting the truth. Paul’s stance is firm though, he is not there to please man, but to please God. He stands firm on the truth he knows is of Jesus.
examine this passage in light of today’s church, we notice many churches have
fallen into the trap that the Galatians have tried to set for Paul. Churches through
history have stood upon the truth of the gospel, not wavering for man’s
opinion. However, as selfism has flooded the secular world, and breeched the
gates of many churches; those churches have broken from their doctrine to satisfy
these individuals. Churches have now preached to tickle the ears of the congregations
that flood their auditoriums and have completed disregarded the word of God.
They promote a new Gospel; which Paul gives us a stern warning against in 2
Corinthians 11 verse 4. For the modern church today, we can assume Paul would
have strong rebukes against them for moving away from their first love. We have
turned to pleasing man and not God. The church is in dire need for men to step
up and stan upon Sola Scriptura, preaching only the scripture. We need to stand
not to please man, but God.
