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
