You foolish people of Galatia! Who has put you under an evil spell? When I preached, I clearly showed you that Jesus Christ had been nailed to the cross.
I would like to learn just one thing from you. Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law? Or did you receive the Spirit by believing what you heard?
Are you so foolish? You began with the Holy Spirit. Are you now trying to complete God's work in you by your own strength?
Have you suffered so much for nothing? And was it really for nothing?
Why does God give you his Spirit? Why does he work miracles among you? Is it because you do what the law says? Or is it because you believe what you have heard?
Think about Abraham. Scripture says, "Abraham believed God. God accepted Abraham because he believed. So his faith made him right with God."#1(Genesis 15:6)#2
So you see, those who have faith are children of Abraham.
