Daily Reading for August 20, 2017

Galatians 5:1-15 (NLT)

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free,
and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law.

2 Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision
to make you right with God, then Christ will be of no benefit to you. 
3 I'll say it again. If you are trying to find favor with God by
being circumcised, you must obey every regulation in the whole law
of Moses. 4 For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God
by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have
fallen away from God's grace.

5 But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by faith the
righteousness God has promised to us. 6 For when we place our faith
in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or being
uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love.

7 You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from
following the truth? 8 It certainly isn't God, for he is the one
who called you to freedom. 9 This false teaching is like a little
yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough! 10 I am
trusting the Lord to keep you from believing false teachings. God
will judge that person, whoever he is, who has been confusing you.

11 Dear brothers and sisters, if I were still preaching that you
must be circumcised --- as some say I do---why am I still being 
persecuted? If I were no longer preaching salvation through the
cross of Christ, no one would be offended. 12 I just wish that
those troublemakers who want to mutilate you by circumcision would
mutilate themselves.

13 For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and
sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.
Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. 14 For the
whole law can be summed up in this one command: "Love your neighbor
as yourself." 15 But if you are always biting and devouring one 
another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another.

Get Into the Word!

The Word for Today
