Galatians 5:1-7 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 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. 2 I, Paul, can guarantee that if you allow yourselves to be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 Again, I insist that everyone who allows himself to be circumcised must realize that he obligates himself to do everything Moses' Teachings demand. 4 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. 5 However, in our spiritual nature, faith causes us to wait eagerly for the confidence that comes with God's approval. 6 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. 7 You were doing so well. Who stopped you from being influenced by the truth?
