My blog is where I post things I have learned through my own personal Bible study. Join me in digging deep into the Word to find the gold hidden inside. And feel free to email me if you think there's a theological error in any of my posts or if there's a topic you want me to cover in my next post.
You Have Been Called To Liberty
3 years ago.

Liberty is costly to win, costly to use, and costly when you lose it. But it is a powerful force we can use either for good or for evil. One of the many powerful passages I memorized for Bible Bee nationals this year was Galatians 5:13-26. Paul begins that passage by telling us that we have been called to liberty. Not liberty to practice lawlessness, but rather liberty from the works of the flesh. That is what we are to strive for with God's help. With this liberty, what will we do with it? Use it for good by serving one another through love and displaying the fruit of the Spirit, or to use it for evil by biting and devouring one another, and manifesting the works of the flesh? "And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." (Galatians 5:24-25) If I am living my daily life with this in mind, and disciplining my body into submission to His will, how can I go wrong? I myself am far from perfect in this area, but each day we live with that as our mindset, we are taking one step closer to Him, whether that step is a giant leap, or a tiny crawl.
