“For freedom Christ has set us free, stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.”
- Gal 5.1
When I encounter some zealous soul who insists that unless I observe some custom they say is essential to a right relationship to God, I patiently explain Christ has set me free, that I now walk joyfully in his Holy Spirit – and nothing they have to offer adds anything to the freedom I now enjoy from God.
Note: a point of caution here. I’m not advocating the heresy, “I can do whatever I want.” What I am saying is this, my obedience to my master Jesus is freedom. It is life abundant.
