Main theme: Do not submit to being a slave to obeying the Law in order to earn righteousness. Insight: Note that v. 5 says "through the Spirit," and then "by faith." Is this an insight that we do all things with God's help? --> It seems as if Paul is alluding to the Spirit granting/giving faith. Insight: Also note in v.5 that we eagerly "wait" for righteousness, we do not eagarly earn our righteousness through our works. Insight: v. 6 seems to explain the latter half of v.5 in saying that "neither circum. or uncircum. counts for anything," in other words, no outward lifestyle earns righteousness by only "faith working through love." Question: What is "faith working through love?" Flow of Thought: Main Plea : 5:1 Do not submit to slavery again by trying to earn righteousness through the Law. Supporting Plea 5:2: Righteousness through the Law nullifies the Cross of Christ. Supporting Plea 5:3: Righteousness through the Law requires an impossible task, absolute perfection (see James 2:10). Supporting Plea 5:4: Righteousness through the Law leads you away from grace. Supporting Plea 5:5: Righteousness through the Spirit by Grace leads you to Christ. Ending Plea 5:6: Your supposed "good works" or "bad works" do not earn you righteousness, but only faith in Christ evidenced in love. See Isaiah 64:6

Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision,

you have fallen away from grace.

we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
