1 Christ has set us free in freedom; a stand fast therefore, and be not held again in a yoke of bondage.

References for Galatians 5:1

    • ‘ 5:1 - i.e. liberty as opposed to bondage. See 1Cor. 10.29.
      2 Behold, I, Paul, say to you, that if ye are circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
      3 And I witness again to every man [who is] circumcised, that he is debtor to do the whole law.
      4 Ye are deprived of all profit b from the Christ as separated [from him], as many as are justified by law; ye have fallen from grace.

      References for Galatians 5:4

        • ’ 5:4 - The word translated here 'deprived of all profit' is hard to translate. The active form means to render anything useless and unprofitable, or miss an opportunity; as 'annulled,' Eph. 2.15. Here it is passive and with the preposition (apo) 'from.' Hence it is to be deprived of the profit or effect of anything. It is used in Rom. 7.6 ('we are clear') in the same form as here, for our deliverance from under the law; only there it refers not to profit, but to the action of the law. It had for them become void of effect. So here Christ. What the word speaks of is, not separation from Christ personally, but from what is for us in him.
          5 For we, by [the] Spirit, on the principle of faith, await the hope of righteousness.
          6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision has any force, nor uncircumcision; but faith working through love.
