What is Paul’s hope for the Galatians?

Galatians 4:19 (ESV)

19 my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!

Paul’s desire was for the Galatians to be united to Christ through faith, so that the Spirit would work in them to conform them more and more into the image of Christ (Romans 8:29).1 He wanted them to become mature Christian believers.2
