Christian Liberty

5

1 aStand1 fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a byoke of bondage.
2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that aif you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.
3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised athat he is 1a debtor to keep the whole law.
4 aYou have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; byou have fallen from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit eagerly await for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6 For ain Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but bfaith working through love.

Love Fulfills the Law

7 You aran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
8 This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you.
9 aA little leaven leavens the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is.
11 And I, brethren, if I still preach

circumcision, awhy do I still suffer persecution? Then bthe offense of the cross has ceased.
12 aI could wish that those bwho trouble you would even 1cut themselves off!
13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only ado not use liberty as an bopportunity for the flesh, but cthrough love serve one another.
14 For aall the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: b“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!

Walking in the Spirit

16 I say then: aWalk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
17 For athe flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, bso that you do not do the things that you wish.
18 But aif you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now athe works of the flesh are evident, which are: 1adultery, 2fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21 envy, 1murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that athose who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But athe fruit of the Spirit is blove, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, cgoodness, dfaithfulness,
23 1gentleness, self-control. aAgainst such there is no law.
24 And those who are Christ’s ahave crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 aIf we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 aLet us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Bear and Share the Burdens

6

1 Brethren, if a man is 1overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of agentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.
2 aBear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill bthe law of Christ.
3 For aif anyone thinks himself to be something, when bhe is nothing, he deceives himself.
4 But alet each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and bnot in another.
5 For aeach one shall bear his own load.

Be Generous and Do Good

6 aLet him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for awhatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap aeverlasting life.
9 And alet us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap bif we do not lose heart.
10 aTherefore, as we have opportunity, blet us do good to all, cespecially to those who are of the household of faith.

Glory Only in the Cross

11 See with what large letters I have written to you with my own hand!
12 As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised,

EPHESIANS 1:3

aonly that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
13 For not even those who are circumcised keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.
14 But God forbid that I should boast except in the across of our Lord Jesus Christ, by 1whom the world has been crucified to me, and bI to the world.
15 For ain Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.

Blessing and a Plea

16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.
17 From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

PSALM 7

Prayer and Praise for Deliverance from Enemies

A aMeditation1 of David, which he sang to the LORD bconcerning the words of Cush, a Benjamite.

1 O LORD my God, in You I put my trust; aSave me from all those who persecute me; And deliver me,
2 aLest they tear me like a lion, bRending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

3 O LORD my God, aif I have done this: If there is biniquity in my hands,
4 If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me, Or ahave plundered my enemy without cause,
5 Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me; Yes, let him trample my life to the earth, And lay my honor in the dust. Selah

6 Arise, O LORD, in Your anger; aLift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies; bRise up 1for me to the judgment You have commanded!
7 So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You; For their sakes, therefore, return on high.

9 Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; aFor the righteous God tests the hearts and 1minds.
10 1My defense is of God, Who saves the aupright in heart.

11 God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.
12 If he does not turn back, He will asharpen His sword;
He bends His bow and makes it ready.
13 He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

14 aBehold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
15 He made a pit and dug it out, aAnd has fallen into the ditch which he made.
16 aHis trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on 1his own crown.

17 I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
