A New Creation – Galatians Ch6v11to18

A New Creation – Galatians Ch6v11to18

In this morning’s passage Paul takes the pen into his own hand to give a final summary highlighting the vital message of his letter to the Galatians.  Andy Hunter draws out the details of Paul’s argument.

Those seeking to add circumcision to the gospel are doing it solely for their own ends: to make their group seem special, and to avoid persecution from their Jewish compatriots for associating with uncircumcised gentiles. 

Paul shows that circumcision is just one item in the law.  But the requirement of the law is all or nothing.  Likewise, the gospel of grace producing a new creation through Jesus’ death on the cross is all or nothing.  You cannot pick and mix.
