Galatians 6:11-18 Reading the Passage

Glory in the Cross of Christ – Galatians 6:11-18

6 (11) See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand. (12) Those who desire to make a good impression in the flesh, they are the ones who are compelling you to be circumcised—they do so only to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. (13) Not even those who are circumcised keep the law themselves, but they desire you to be circumcised so that they may boast in your flesh! (14) But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by means of which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world—(15) for neither circumcision means anything nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. (16) I say concerning all those who will walk in line with this standard, peace and mercy be upon them, indeed, upon the Israel of God. (17) Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear the marks of Jesus on my body. (18) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.
