The Kitchen Table Galatians Day 24
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love Galatians 5:13
We’ve been called to live free. We’ve been invited and empowered to live free. But free for what? We’ve been set free to love God and love like God. A free life is free to love life and be loved in life. But this isn’t freedom to live loving in the flesh, that kind of love is selfish. It’s the freedom to know God’s love and to live in God’s love. The love of the flesh operates in the appetites of the flesh and enslaves the spirit. The love of the Father operates in the attitude of His Spirit and frees the spirit to know real life and to live life. There’s a difference in serving the appetites of the flesh which enslave our spirit to shame and serving the attitude of the Holy Spirit which empowers our skin to know true love. We have been called to live free but to do so we must live from our spirit and not for our skin. When we live free in God’s love we will share freely God’s love with others. It’s an awesome life.
