How Do We STAY Free?
Galatians 5:1 So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
As we continue our “Read Your Bible” Series in the book of Galatians, I hope that you are being encouraged and challenged in your faith.
If you’ve not been able to attend the past few Sundays at Journey, I encourage you to visit our YouTube Channel or www.thejourneyonline.com so that you can catch up.. Obviously, you’re READING along and will hopefully have noticed the same theme coming up over and over again.
That theme is FREEDOM.
The church in Galatia isn’t all that different than modern day western churches. It seems to be a timeless struggle to understand the freedom we have in Christ and our call to live according to His Word. One seems restrictive and obligatory, the other seems to be carefree and unaccountable.
This Sunday, we’re going to narrow in on HOW we stay free. HOW we can live in freedom while holding tightly to the ideals and instructions we’ve been given by God. HOW do we keep ourselves FREE from adding our self-effort to Christ’s work, while still understanding our call to reject a sinful life and see the power of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
I hope you will join us this Sunday at 9 & 11am. I look forward to seeing you then.
