This is a large Arc, a little past my paygrade. However, it seems that there is one main idea, an explanation, and then some reasoning from that point (the final ground). The idea is to know that we were meant for freedom and not slavery. Not slavery to non gods and especially to the law. Do go back to any form of work is to be yoked all over again. The Bulk of the passage is Paul's expounding on this idea. He tells the readers to not add anything to the gospel, to not be circumcised, for those who preach otherwise to castrate themselves, and so on. His point is that grace alone is what we need and that everything else is enslaving. He ends with a charge to, because of our freedom in Christ, love one another. Freedom from having to worry about our own justification and standing with God should set us up to love others in a radical and unique way.

Galatians
Galatians 5:1-15
NT
esv
mine
For freedom Christ has set us free;
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.
progression
You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law;
you have fallen away from grace.
actionresult
For through the Spirit, by faith,
we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
ground
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything,
but only faith working through love.
negativepositive
You were running well.
Who hindered you from obeying the truth?
This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
questionanswer
A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
comparison
I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view than mine,
and the one who is troubling you will bear the penalty, whoever he is.
series
But if I, brothers, still preach circumcision, why am I still being persecuted?
In that case the offense of the cross has been removed.
I wish those who unsettle you would emasculate themselves!
situationresponse
ideaexplanation
For you were called to freedom, brothers.
Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh,
but through love serve one another.
alternative
concessive
For the whole law is fulfilled in one word:
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
But if you bite and devour one another,
watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
