FREE TO BE LIKE GOD


Galatians 5:13


"You my brothers were called to be free. But do not
use your freedom to indulge in the sinful nature;
rather serve one another in love." (NIV)


"For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty;
only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh,
but by love serve one another." (KJV)


Oh, the thought of being free is such a wonderful
thing. Do we give thought to how we became free
and from what we were freed? We were made free
by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.
We are free from the chains and binding ropes of
sin and our own selfish wills. We no longer have to
give in to those things we know we should not do.
We are free to live so that we become more and more
like Christ. We are free to live as servants of the Most
High God and to serve one another in love.


Heavenly Father, how can we ever thank you enough
for setting us free. Free to love and serve one another
as you love us. Help us Lord to use our freedom solely
for Your kingdom, we pray in Jesus' name. Amen
