“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Galatians 5:13-14 (NIV)
Often we think of freedom as the ability to do whatever we want. We’re free when we don’t have anyone telling us what to do. Maybe a better understanding is that because of Jesus, we’re free to love. We’re free to submit ourselves to God, to serve people, and to give ourselves away. There’s nothing holding us back or keeping us from living like that. Because of Jesus, we’re free from sin and its power at work in our lives, and we’re free to pursue God and his ways. How are you using your freedom these days? To indulge or to love?
