Faith Through Love

Re:Verse passage – Galatians 5:1-15 (day two) 

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love. vs. 6

Searching for meaning? At some level, conscious or otherwise, all of us are. We have picked apart Paul’s letter to the Galatian church for nearly three months, and have spoken over and over again about the how they let the Law become something greater than Christ. In a beautiful turn in this passage in chapter five, Paul reminds them of what the are called to do: Love and serve. It is also worth noting that this call is from the Law! He later quotes it in vs. 14  For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus calls us to this very statement when cornered by the Pharisees. To love and serve through faith is our new assignment. Not despite the law, not shackled by the law, but informed and set free by Christ’s fulfillment of the law.
