Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ will be of no benefit to you.
Sounds kind of crude, but what Paul was saying is that simply “acting” like a Christian won’t cut it. There’s an acronym for part timers called CEO Christians, who go to church on Christmas and Easter Only. Following Jesus Christ is much more than simply “going” to church. It’s becoming part of it, participating in it, digging deep into his word, and having a relationship with him. “Saying” you are a Christian is much different than “being” a follower of Jesus Christ.
