Our Only Hope

Galatians 5: 5-6. “For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.”

How many ways has he said it?  No works of man, including circumcision, will unlock the door to salvation and eternal life. Our only hope, and it is a sure hope, is in the shed blood at Calvary and the resurrection of Jesus, Who had victory over sin and death.

It won’t matter if a man is circumcised or uncircumcised when he stands before God. What will matter is his faith, which has expressed itself through love.

Simple. Yet that simple concept has confounded the “wisdom” of the world.
