The only thing that counts…

Galatians 5:6
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value.
The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

One more “one more” or “only thing” passage and this is one of my favorites. I just love that this verse is Paul reminding us that our external actions mean nothing without the proper internal motivation. The only thing that matters in life is our faith in Jesus Christ being expressed through love.

The good and kindness I do to others doesn’t matter, it doesn’t count unless it comes as an outpouring of my faith in Christ and my desire to glorify Him alone.

Whether I’m running or sharing about the need for Bible translation or whatever, the only thing that matters is if my faith in Christ is there and how it’s being shown to the world.
