Galatians 5:13-23 – New Revised Standard Version
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters, only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become enslaved to one another.
14 For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
15 If, however, you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery,
20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions,
21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.
Galatians 5 says do not use freedom as opportunity for self‐indulgence, but through love become slaves to 1 another. The whole law is summed up: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Paul reminds us that love is putting someone else first. This is the way of Jesus. We love by taking a direct interest in someone else. It’s about caring for people across our differences. To love is to reach & go the extra mile.
