Galatians 5:1-6 NCV

1 We have freedom now, because Christ made us free. So stand strong. Do not change and go back into the slavery of the law.
2 Listen, I Paul tell you that if you go back to the law by being circumcised, Christ does you no good.
3 Again, I warn every man: If you allow yourselves to be circumcised, you must follow all the law.
4 If you try to be made right with God through the law, your life with Christ is over -- you have left God's grace.
5 But we have the true hope that comes from being made right with God, and by the Spirit we wait eagerly for this hope.
6 When we are in Christ Jesus, it is not important if we are circumcised or not. The important thing is faith -- the kind of faith that works through love.
