Galatians 5:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.1 4 You who are trying to be justified by law2 have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.3 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope.4 6 For in Christ Jesus5 neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value.6 The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.7 7 You were running a good race.8 Who cut in on you9 and kept you from obeying the truth? 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.10 9 "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."11 10 I am confident12 in the Lord that you will take no other view.13 The one who is throwing you into confusion14 will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted?15 In that case the offense16 of the cross has been abolished. 12 As for those agitators,17 I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! 13 You, my brothers, were called to be free.18 But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful naturea;19 rather, serve one another20 in love.
