Galatians 4:4  “…made of a woman, made under the law”
Jesus was man that He might save us.  He had to be one of us.

Galatians 5:3  “…every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.”
Not that circumcision means anything, but if you do it to comply with the law in order to follow or live by the law, you’re obligated to follow all of it.

Galatians 5:4  “…ye are fallen from grace”
Have heard that phrase many times by those who teach you can lose salvation.  They probably acknowledge the context, but say it’s a possibility as it is mentioned as a phrase.  That is totally untrue.  Salvation is a change that cannot be undone.  There’s nothing to lose.  Even those at Galatia who had been saved, but were trying to live by the law were in no danger of losing salvation.  They were losing their freedom to live the Christian life by the grace of Christ.

Galatians 5:18  “But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.”
Does this mean we don’t have to keep the law as Christians?  No.  It means that we are not subject to the law’s control and condemnation.  When the law is applied to an unbeliever, his sin is revealed and he is condemned.  When the law is applied to a Christian, his sin is revealed, but is marked paid by the blood of Christ.  He is not condemned because the price of his sin has been paid.
