1It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and refuse to submit again to the yoke of slavery.

2Mark my words: I, Paul, say to you that if you get yourself circumcised Christ will benefit you no more.

3I impress on you once again that every man who accepts circumcision is under obligation to keep the entire law.

4When you seek to be justified by way of law, you are cut off from Christ: you have put yourselves outside God's grace.

5For it is by the Spirit and through faith that we hope to attain that righteousness which we eagerly await.

6If we are in union with Christ Jesus, circumcision makes no difference at all, nor does the lack of it; the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

7You were running well; who was it hindered you from following the truth?

8Whatever persuasion was used, it did not come from God who called you.

9“A little leaven”, remember, “leavens all the dough.”

10The Lord gives me confidence that you will not adopt the wrong view; but whoever it is who is unsettling your minds must bear God's judgement.

11As for me, my friends, if I am still advocating circumcision, then why am I still being persecuted? To do that would be to strip the cross of all offence.

12Those agitators had better go the whole way and make eunuchs of themselves!

Guidance by the Spirit

13(YOU, MY) friends, were called to be free; only beware of turning your freedom into licence for your unspiritual nature. Instead, serve one another in love;

14for the whole law is summed up in a single commandment: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”

15But if you go on fighting one another, tooth and nail, all you can expect is mutual destruction.

16What I mean is this: be guided by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of your unspiritual nature.

17That nature sets its desires against the Spirit, while the Spirit fights against it. They are in conflict with one another so that you cannot do what you want.

18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to law.

19Anyone can see the behaviour that belongs to the unspiritual nature: fornication, indecency, and debauchery;

20idolatry and sorcery; quarrels, a contentious temper, envy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, party intrigues,

21and jealousies; drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that no one who behaves like that will ever inherit the kingdom of God.

22But the harvest of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, fidelity,

23gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the old nature with its passions and desires.

25If the Spirit is the source of our life, let the Spirit also direct its course.

26We must not be conceited, inciting one another to rivalry, jealous of one another.
