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. Peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel, that is, the Church, of God - Which consists of all those, and those only, of every nation and kindred, who walk by this rule.


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".

    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.

    Romans 8:25-31 "God's purpose for our life" 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. 26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
