Are You Using Your Freedom As an Opportunity for the Flesh?

Are You Using Your Freedom As an Opportunity for the Flesh?

Galatians 5:13 “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.” (ESV)

Freedom –
–           The state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.

  • Exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
  • The power to determine action without restraint.
  • Political or national independence.
  • Personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery.

Thank God that we are in the land of the ‘free’ and the home of the brave. We can worship, praise, speak, and teach on religion whenever we wish and to whomever we desire.

What a wonderful opportunity.

Keep a close guard on your heart so you do not begin to take your liberty for granted and heed Apostle Paul’s warning to ‘not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but to serve each other through love.’
