Christ has freed us so that we may enjoy the benefits of freedom. Therefore, be firm [in this freedom], and don't become slaves again.
I, Paul, can guarantee that if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
Again, I insist that everyone who allows himself to be circumcised must realize that he obligates himself to do everything Moses' Teachings demand.
Those of you who try to earn God's approval by obeying his laws have been cut off from Christ. You have fallen out of God's favor.
However, in our spiritual nature, faith causes us to wait eagerly for the confidence that comes with God's approval.
As far as our relationship to Christ Jesus is concerned, it doesn't matter whether we are circumcised or not. But what matters is a faith that expresses itself through love.
