24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
Through all Paul’s letters it is clear that two things drive him. The first is his desire to share the good news about Jesus with as many people as possible. The other, which is revealed here, is that God’s people are united and do all that they can to protect and strengthen the bond between them. We are saved through being in Christ, and bond together by the Spirit that lives in all God’s children. Let’s delight in this wonderful diverse, rich and beautiful family that God has brought into being!
