CHAPTER 6

Many want you to get circumcised
(so they can glory in your flesh)
6:1-18

1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

If someone makes a mistake,

gently help that person make amends.

2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

Bear each other's burdens. [1]

5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Bear you own burden.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

If you live by the flesh, you'll die and your body will rot. [2]

If you live by the spirit, you'll live forever.

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Don't get tired of doing good things.

10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Do good to everyone.

11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

See how large my handwriting is.

12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

Many people want you to get circumcised

so they can glory in your flesh. [3]

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Get circumcised or don't get circumcised.

It doesn't matter.

17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

I have on my body the marks of Jesus.

18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

Amen.
