Verse of the Day (October 23, 2019)

Verse of the Day (October 23, 2019) – Paul’s letter began with rebuke (1:6; 3:1) and with justification of his apostolic authority (1:1, 11–24); it now adopts a more familial tone as Paul addresses the Galatians as “brothers” (6:1). The injunction to watch one’s own life is prominent in this section. The fulfillment of the law is seen in the expression of love as fruit of a transformed life empowered by the Spirit. Grace does not negate the need for moral character; it empowers it. Evidence of this work of grace in the life of the Christian will be seen in bearing each other’s burdens (v. 2) and in a true assessment of one’s own life (vv. 3–4).
