Sunday, November 13th - Galatians 4-6 ~ Kelora

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Galatians 4-6

A few key verses stood to me while reading these chapters.

Chapter 5:6 says. "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love."    The last part of this verse stood out for me.  We are saved by faith and our love for others will be shown through our faith. 

Another verse that I really like is Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.  Against such things there is no law.  These are wonderful character traits but they cannot be achieved on our own but through God's help.

Lastly, the final verse that I will mention is Galatians 5:14 "The entire law is summed up in a single command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'. If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be devastated by each other."  These verses are a good reminder to myself that it is so easy to get caught up and be critical of others around me but to remember to love each other.
