Paul concludes his letter to the Galatians with final instructions on how to live by the Spirit. Sinful believers in the church should be restored gently, everyone should bear each others’ burdens, but everyone should also take care of themselves. He reminds the Galatians that our actions in this life will be rewarded accordingly, both now and in the age to come. And so, we should do good to all people. What we sow, we will reap. Finally, Paul addresses the competing Jewish “authorities” who have deceived the Galatians and caused strife in the church. His parting rebuke to these false teachers is that they are afraid of persecution and only teach law-following so that they look good to other Jewish authorities. Paul, on the other hand, has suffered for Christ out of true devotion, and wants no more trouble from these false teachers. What he wants is for his spiritual children to prosper by walking in the obedience of faith, so they can have a bountiful harvest.
