Thank God for the Holy Spirit

The Williams New Testament knocks it out of the park again. 

This was my morning reading. I was in Gal 5:1-6. 

And how does Williams render verse 6? "For in union with Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor the lack of it counts for anything; but only faith that is spurred on to action by love." Notice: "that is spurred on to action." This represents the voice of the Greek perfectly. Christianity is not only a life of faith. It is a life in the Spirit. And it is the Holy Spirit in us -- and the Holy Spirit alone -- who produces good works of love. 

The faith that saves is a faith that issues forth in love -- always!
