"The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life." John 6:63

Galatians 3: O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. 2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? 4 Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? 5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

Christians today are bewitched by different words. Words that are not from God. They are told to find assurance of salvation (in other words put their faith in) their prosperity, their feelings, their obedience, their works, and/or their reasoning and knowledge. NO! We find our assurance and put our faith in GOD and His Words. His promises. In the cross. In Jesus.

John 3:14 "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life."

John 19:30 "It is finished."
