Galatians 5:1-6 GNT

1 Freedom is what we have - Christ has set us free! Stand, then, as free people, and do not allow yourselves to become slaves again.
2 Listen! I, Paul, tell you that if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, it means that Christ is of no use to you at all.
3 Once more I warn any man who allows himself to be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the whole Law.
4 Those of you who try to be put right with God by obeying the Law have cut yourselves off from Christ. You are outside God's grace.
5 As for us, our hope is that God will put us right with him; and this is what we wait for by the power of God's Spirit working through our faith.
6 For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love.
