Book of Galatians

Day 24

READ Galatians 4:8-11
Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again? You are observing special days and months and seasons and years! I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you.

In these verses, Paul expresses his concern for the Galatians, who were turning back to the weak and miserable forces of the world after knowing God. He reminds them of their former way of life and urges them not to be enslaved again by the religious rituals and observances of the law. Paul emphasizes the importance of guarding against spiritual regression and remaining steadfast in the faith.

Questions to ponder:

  • Consider the danger of turning back to former ways of life after knowing God. How can you guard against spiritual regression in your own life?
  • Reflect on any religious rituals or observances that may tempt you to rely on your own efforts for salvation. How can you maintain a posture of faith and dependence on God’s grace?
