Galatians 5.10 LEB

Paul fought against salvation through works of merit, an effort centered in Jewish law. He condemned such an effort because it cancelled obedience to the truth (verse 7).

In matters of faith, only one line of thought, that is, the model teaching about salvation and life in Christ, is accepted by God. It is dangerous to think differently.

Heavenly Father, may we accept only that persuasion which comes from the One who called us to your life.

Hold this thought: To think like God means salvation in Christ.
