NOT BY WORKS
In Gal. 5:1-12, Paul is stating that even if you are living under the Old Testament laws and trying to keep them, it doesn’t mean you are saved. It is not by works, but by grace we are saved and have everlasting life with Christ. We are saved by accepting God’s gift of grace and acknowledging that Christ died on the cross for us. Even so, we should not only sound like Christians but act like Christians, so much so that it is obvious to those around us.
