Paul's Concluding Thoughts
Galatians 6:11-18

Paul takes the pen in his own hand (Gal 6:11)

One last strike against the false teachers (Gal 6:12-13)

One last reminder of what Christ's work on the cross accomplished for us (Gal 6:14-16)

One last testimony to Paul's apostleship (Gal 6:17)

One final blessing on Paul's brethren (Gal 6:18)

We must avoid the temptation to put on a good show to get the approval of others or to gather a band of followers. If we boast in anything we should boast only in what Christ has done for us on the cross. We should live every day in light of our new life in Christ, realizing that persecution might be the consequence of such a life lived for Christ.

Was the letter to the Galatians effective?
