The Apostle Paul declares to you and all others his eternal focus on Jesus Christ and not on the religious laws of men. “But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God” (Gal 6:14-16). You as a new creation faithfully respond daily to Christ’s gracious indwelling leadership and reject your natural desire to be in control.
