Galatians 5:4-6 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Those of you who try to earn God’s approval by obeying his laws have been cut off from Christ. You have fallen out of God’s favor. [a] However, in our spiritual nature, faith causes us to wait eagerly for the confidence that comes with God’s approval. As far as our relationship to Christ Jesus is concerned, it doesn’t matter whether we are circumcised or not. But what matters is a faith that expresses itself through love.

Galatians 5:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
