(Week 28 of the year: Tuesday)
WHETHER YOU ARE CIRCUMCISED OR NOT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE – WHAT MATTERS IS FAITH THAT MAKES ITS POWER FELT THROUGH LOVE.
…the freedom wherewith Christ has made us free.
Stand fast, and be not held again under the yoke of bondage.
Behold, I Paul tell you, that if you be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
And I testify again to every man circumcising himself, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
You are made void of Christ, you who are justified in the law: you are fallen from grace.
For we in spirit, by faith, wait for the hope of justice.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision: but faith that worketh by charity.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
