Today's reading: Galatians 6:11-18
Paul is thorough. I have to give him that. As he closes out his letter to the Galatians, he again reminds them of the primary reason for his writing--to correct their thinking about salvation. So as he concludes, Paul clearly communicates, yet again, that salvation comes through faith in Christ, not keeping a set of rules and regulations.
"For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation" (vs. 15).
What does placing your faith in Christ and becoming "a new creation" mean for you personally? How would you explain salvation (being a new creation) to someone who thinks following rules and "being a good person" is what’s required for them to go to heaven? Tami
