Galatians 4:8-20

8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved ot those that by nature are not gods. 9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? 10 You observe days and months and seasons and years! 11 I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain.

12 Brothers, I entreat you, become as I am, for I also have become as you are. You did me no wrong. 13 Youknow it was because of abodily ailment that I preached the gospel to you at first, 14 and though my condition was a trial ot you, you did not scorn or despise me, but received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus. 15 What then has become of your blessedness?  For I testify to you that, if possible, you would have gouged out your eyes and given them to me. 16 Have I then become our enemy by telling you the truth? 17 They make much of you, but for no good purpose. They want to shut you out, that you may make much of them. 18 It is always good to be made much of for agood purpose, and not only when I am present  with you, 19 my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you! 20 I wish I could be present with you now and change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.

Minister:  The Word of the Lord!
People:  Thanks be to God!
