Background : The Galatians are listening to the Judaizers and are (at least) entertaining their proposal. Their proposal is for the Galatian Christians to not only trust Jesus for their justification, but to contribute to their justification through the observance of God-authored, Old Testament, old covenant law; Things like circumcision, dietary restrictions, and feast recognition. Paul's response has been (and will be) that this is a deadly, heretical, enslaving proposal. In verse 1, Paul states a fact and gives a command. Fact : "Christ has set you free" ( 1a,1b ). Command : "Be free," or "Live like free men" ( 1c ). Or, negatively stated ( 1d ), "Don't reenter slavery." The looming question after Paul's statement in verse 1 is, "How is being circumcised submitting to a yoke of slavery?" Paul answers this question in verses 2 through 6. In verse 2 through 4 Paul explains, in further detail, the enslaving consequences of being circumcised (i.e. seeking to contribute to justification through the observance of laws). In verses 5 and 6, Paul gives the ground (or foundation) for the dramatic language he has just used. In short, trying to justify ourselves severs us from the one who justifies us. Slaves in that you can't follow all 613 laws. Slaves in that you will therefore remain chained to condemnation. Following these laws as a means for justification will make you slaves. Taking hold of Jesus and trust Jesus also means not trusting anything else. To trust anything else

Galatians
Galatians 5:1-6
NT
esv
For freedom
Christ has set us free;
actionpurpose
stand firm therefore,
and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
actionmanner
inference
Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision,
Christ will be of no advantage to you.
conditional
I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision
that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
You are severed from Christ,
you who would be justified by the law;
you have fallen away from grace.
For through the Spirit,
by faith,
we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
For in Christ Jesus
neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything,
but only faith
working through love.
