Galatians 5. Paul encourages the church at Galatia to stay the course in the Freedom found in Christ. Some were more comfortable living under the law and it’s false security based on merit. In our attempt to satisfy the law we feel as though we have something to do with God’s love for us. When in reality He loves us no more because of what we can do or how we perform for Him. He loves us when we are empty and broken.
