The Kitchen Table Galatians Day 7
Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery— 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you
One of the greatest threats to this new life in Christ is false friends. These are people who profess the faith but live in a false gospel. Know God’s word; it is the food of your spirit. The good news of Jesus is about a life of liberty in Him and with Him. But, we won’t see the warning signs if we don’t know His word. We let false friends take positions of influence in our lives when we don’t know God’s word to us. We won’t know truth or love if we don’t know His word to us. Unhealthy relationships are the product of unhealthy eyes. We can’t see spiritually if we can’t think Scripturally. Know the good news of Jesus and you’ll know the good life of love He gives us.
