1. Galatians 6:9 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

Is Paul making salvation (harvest reaping) conditional on our obedience?

Galatians 6:9 (ESV)

9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Paul wants to encourage Christian believers to persevere in doing good and not to give up. In this, he is not claiming that our works contribute to our salvation, but rather affirming that good works will be evident in the lives of those who belong to Jesus Christ. 1 The power and desire to persevere in doing good is one that comes from the Holy Spirit. 2
