Galatians 5:13-18. Paul writes the letter to the Galatians to swing them away from being justified by the law. However, Paul knows the tendency is to swing out of balance into sinful license. This is the balance for all believers, to swing to neither legalism or license, but to stay in liberty.
Galatians 5:7-12. Christians are offensive for all the wrong reasons. However, at some point, we will never be able to make Christianity cool enough for some. Let the cross be the stumbling block, and not us.
Galatians 4:1-7. Paul shows the new believers that if they have faith in Jesus they have moved from slavery to sonship.

Galatians 3:6-9. The Judaizers were using Abraham as the model example of why all new Gentile believers should be circumcised to truly be a part of God’s family. Countering their argument, Paul uses Abraham to prove that he was justified before he was circumcised. Oh snap!
