Doing Good to All

1 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit1 should restore2 that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.3 3 If any of you think you are something4 when you are nothing, you deceive yourselves.5 4 Each of you should test your own actions. Then you can take pride in yourself,6 without comparing yourself to somebody else,7 5 for each of you should carry your own load.8 6 Nevertheless, those who receive instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.9 7 Do not be deceived:10 God cannot be mocked. People reap what they sow.11 8 Those who sow to please their sinful nature,12 from that naturea will reap destruction;13 those who sow to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.14 9 Let us not become weary in doing good,15 for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.16 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good17 to all people, especially to those who belong to the family18 of believers.

Not Circumcision but the New Creation

11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!19 12 Those who want to impress others by means of the flesh20 are trying to compel you to be circumcised.21 The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted22 for the cross of Christ. 13 Not even those who are circumcised keep the law,23 yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh.24 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,25 through whichb the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.26 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything;27 what counts is the new creation.28 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule--toc the Israel of God. 17 From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks29 of Jesus. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ30 be with your spirit,31 brothers and sisters. Amen.
