Galatians is About Freedom--Only Six Chapters!

Christians are saved by faith
The book of Galatians is a short book of only six chapters that is mainly about the Christian’s freedom in Christ.  It is a letter Paul wrote to the Galatians to encourage them to stay strong in their faith.  Some Galatians were being misled to believe that they had to be circumcised to be a follower of Christ and Paul wrote to them emphasizing that was not so.  He encouraged them to stick to the truth, fulfill the law by loving their neighbors as themselves, and being saved by their faith in Christ and not by their obedience to the law.  They were encouraged to bear each others burdens, be especially good to other believers, not grow weary in well doing and let Christ live through them by faith.
