Christ Sets Us Free

1 Christ has set us free. He wants us to enjoy freedom. So stand firm. Don't let the chains of slavery hold you again.

References for Galatians 5:1

      2 Here is what I, Paul, say to you. Don't let yourselves be circumcised. If you do, Christ won't be of any value to you.
      3 I say it again. Every man who lets himself be circumcised must obey the whole law.
      4 Some of you are trying to be made right with God by obeying the law. You have been separated from Christ. You have fallen away from God's grace.
      5 But we expect to be made completely holy because of our faith in Christ. Through the Holy Spirit we wait in hope.
      6 Circumcision and uncircumcision aren't worth anything to those who believe in Christ Jesus. The only thing that really counts is faith that shows itself through love.
      7 You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth?
