Wesley's Notes for Galatians 6:16


6:16 And as many as walk according to this rule - Glorying only in the cross of Christ. Being crucified to the world. And, Created anew.

People's Bible Notes for Galatians 6:16


Ga 6:16 As many as walk according to this rule. The rule just named in Ga 6:15. A benediction is pronounced upon all such. And upon the Israel of God. Rather, "Even upon", etc. The Greek word "kai" often means "even", and does here, as the Israel of God does not differ from those who follow "this rule".

    Vs 4-5
    From time to time we should do a self examination to see how we are measuring up to God's standards. Hopefully, it will be a cause of rejoicing. If we see we need improvement, then let's strive to make changes in our lives to live up to what God expects of us. By being balanced we will not compare ourselves to others for we all must carry our own load.
