It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1

Jesus alone sets us free, but obsessive obedience to the law enslaves us to sin. This is why Paul urges his readers throughout Galatians to not use their freedom to subject themselves again to slavery.
The choice is ours, but God has set us free so we can can live in ways honouring and pleasing to Him. We can only do this when living by the Spirit of Christ, who works in us to produce the fruit of the Spirit --love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
When we let God be God in our lives and enjoy the resulting freedom, we live a more balanced life that not only generates goodwill and comradeship, but makes us a happier person because of it!

Sovereign Lord, there are many activities and events we enjoy. We only ask that we exhibit more of the fruit of the Spirit wherever we are, and thank You for the freedom that comes in relationship with You. Amen

I am so grateful that You have given us the freedom on choice and that through Your teachings we have learned how to live with the love and caring You have taught us. Without living the life chose for us, we would definitely go back to being a slave to our sins. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your teachings.

Thank you for coming to my blog and posting your comments. Sending you God's richest blessings to you and precious families. May God cover you with His loving arms in times of joy and trouble and carry you through all times. God bless you.
