Walk by the Spirit
1 1aIt was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore bkeep standing firm and do not be subject again to a cyoke of slavery.
2 Behold I, aPaul, say to you that if you receive bcircumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
3 And I atestify again to every man who receives bcircumcision, that he is under obligation to ckeep the whole Law.
4 You have been severed from Christ, you who 1are seeking to be justified by law; you have afallen from grace.
5 For we 1through the Spirit, 2by faith, are awaiting for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in aChrist Jesus bneither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but cfaith working through love.
7 You were arunning well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion did not come from aHim who calls you.
