Chapter 5

5:4  Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

no effect

grace

no effect i.e. of no experimental effect: the sense of liberty is lost. Galatians 2:21; Colossians 1:23.

grace Grace (in salvation). Ephesians 1:6,7; Romans 3:24. (See Scofield "Galatians 1:6") , See Scofield "John 1:17".

5:5  For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

righteousness

(See Scofield "Romans 10:10") .

5:18  But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

under the law

i.e. not under bondage of effort to please God by law-works. 2 Corinthians 3:17.

5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

But the fruit

Christian character is not mere moral or legal correctness, but the possession and manifestation of nine graces: love, joy, peace--character as an inward state; longsuffering, gentleness, goodness--character in expression toward man; faith, meekness, temperance-- character in expression toward God. Taken together they present a moral portrait of Christ, and may be taken as the apostle's explanation of Galatians 2:20 "Not I, but Christ," and as a definition of "fruit" in John 15:1-8 This character is possible because of the believer's vital union to Christ ; John 15:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12,13 and is wholly the fruit of the Spirit in those believers who are yielded to Him. Galatians 5:22,23.
