Stand on love instead of ceremony

For when we place our faith in Christ there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love. Gal. 5:6

Is it possible that some 21st century Christians put faith in certain “Christian” behaviors and disciplines in the same way some 1st century Christians continued to put faith in circumcision? Ceremonial allegiance to behavior, even noble, honorable behavior, may distract our focus away from loving God and loving others out of hearts authentically changed by grace.

Lord, let Your love be the change in my life and the motive behind my responses.
