Galatians 5:6-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 For in Christ Jesus1 neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value.2 The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.3 7 You were running a good race.4 Who cut in on you5 and kept you from obeying the truth? 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.6 9 "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."7 10 I am confident8 in the Lord that you will take no other view.9 The one who is throwing you into confusion10 will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. 11 Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted?11 In that case the offense12 of the cross has been abolished. 12 As for those agitators,13 I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves! 13 You, my brothers, were called to be free.14 But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful naturea;15 rather, serve one another16 in love. 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."b17 15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

Life by the Spirit

16 So I say, live by the Spirit,18 and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.19
