Wesley's Notes for Galatians 5:6


5:6 For in Christ Jesus - According to the institution which he hath established, according to the tenor of the Christian covenant. Neither circumcision - With the most punctual observance of the law. Nor uncircumcision - With the most exact heathen morality. Availeth anything - Toward present justification or eternal salvation. But faith - Alone; even that faith which worketh by love - All inward and outward holiness.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 5:6


Ga 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision. It made no difference in the sight of God whether a Christian was a circumcised Jew or an uncircumcised Gentile. Both stood on the same footing. It did make a great difference, though, if the Gentile Christian became circumcised in order to keep the law (Ga 5:2). It is true Paul circumcised Timothy, but it was not to keep the law. See PNT "Ga 2:3". But faith which worketh by love. But faith availeth--the faith in Christ; the faith which uses love as its medium and method of working. There is first faith in Christ; then the love of Christ.
