加拉太书 6

互相扶持

1弟兄姊妹,如果有人不慎犯了罪,你们顺从圣灵的人就应该温柔地挽回他,同时也要小心,免得自己也受诱惑。 你们要分担彼此的重担,这样就成全了基督的律法。 如果一个一无是处的人自以为了不起,他是自欺。 人人都应该省察自己的行为,即使觉得有可夸之处,自己知道就好了,不必在别人面前炫耀。 因为人人都应该为自己的行为负责。

在真道上受教的人应该把一切美好的东西分享给教导他的人。

不要自欺,上帝是轻慢不得的。人种什么收什么。 顺从罪恶的本性撒种的,必从罪恶的本性收取败坏的恶果;顺从圣灵撒种的,必从圣灵收取永生。 我们行善不可灰心气馁,因为到时候必有收获。 10 我们要把握机会为众人做善事,对待信徒更要如此。

最后的劝勉和祝福

11 你们看,我亲手写给你们的字是多么大啊[a] 12 那些勉强你们接受割礼的人只不过是做表面工夫,想讨好别人,避免为基督的十字架受迫害。 13 那些接受割礼的人自己也不能遵行律法。他们要你们接受割礼,无非是想借着你们的肉体夸耀。 14 至于我自己,我绝不夸耀别的,只夸耀我们主耶稣基督的十字架。因为对我来说,世上的一切都已经被钉在十字架上;对这世界来说,我已经被钉在十字架上。 15 受不受割礼根本无关紧要,做一个新造的人才至关重要。

16 愿上帝的平安和怜悯归给那些愿意按这原则生活的人,也归给上帝的以色列子民[b] 17 但愿从今以后,再也没有人来搅扰我了,因为我身上已经烙上了耶稣的印记。

18 弟兄姊妹,愿我们主耶稣基督的恩典与你们同在。阿们!

Galatians 6

Do Good to Everyone

1Brothers and sisters, what if someone is caught in a sin? Then you who live by the Spirit should correct that person. Do it in a gentle way. But be careful. You could be tempted too. Carry one another’s heavy loads. If you do, you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are somebody when they are nobody, they are fooling themselves. Each person should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves. They won’t be comparing themselves to someone else. Each person should carry their own load. But those who are taught the word should share all good things with their teacher.

Don’t be fooled. You can’t outsmart God. A man gathers a crop from what he plants. Some people plant to please their desires controlled by sin. From these desires they will harvest death. Others plant to please the Holy Spirit. From the Spirit they will harvest eternal life. Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up. 10 So when we can do good to everyone, let us do it. Let’s try even harder to do good to the family of believers.

Not Circumcision but the New Creation

11 Look at the big letters I’m using as I write to you with my own hand!

12 Some people are worried about how things look on the outside. They are trying to force you to be circumcised. They do it for only one reason. They don’t want to suffer by being connected with the cross of Christ. 13 Even those who are circumcised don’t obey the law. But they want you to be circumcised. Then they can brag about what has been done to your body. 14 I never want to brag about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through that cross the ways of the world have been crucified as far as I am concerned. And I have been crucified as far as the ways of the world are concerned. 15 Circumcision and uncircumcision don’t mean anything. What really counts is that the new creation has come. 16 May peace and mercy be given to all who follow this rule. May peace and mercy be given to the Israel that belongs to God.

17 From now on, let no one cause trouble for me. My body has marks that show I belong to Jesus.

18 Brothers and sisters, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
