But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?

Galatians 4:9

When you come to know God through faith in Jesus Christ, it necessarily requires you to abandon many practices and attitudes that are of the way of this world, because they are contrary to the life of faith. Sometimes though, we find ourselves being drawn back to them and the danger is that we can effectively become enslaved to such things again. We need to resist that tendency, those temptations, and continue to strive for the life of freedom through the Spirit of God.
