FROM BLESSING TO ABUSE – Galatians 5:13-21
“Liberty is not the power of doing as we like, it is the right to do as we ought” (Lord Acton). Unfortunately too many don’t live out the reality of that truth. Sunday we look at the danger of abusing the freedom that we have in Christ. That leads to a belief that freedom in Christ means freedom to do as we please without consequence. As we look at a necessary corrective, we find that this abuse of truth starts inside of us subtly and leads to serious issues in our lives as it works out in actions. Living responsibly under freedom is not easy, but it is surprisingly uncomplicated. Take some time to read the passage linked above and get ready for amazing discoveries on Sunday.
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (Galatians 5:13 ESV)
