Free or Slave?

Galatians 5:1, Genuine Freedom, John 14:2
Freedom. We love it. We fight for it. We hold it in high regard.

God also loves freedom:
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1

But Christ's definition of freedom is different from the world's definition.

We think freedom is doing whatever we want - no rules, no boundaries. But Jesus said, "Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin."

Genuine freedom leads to righteousness. but it's not about law-keeping; it's about "love-keeping."

"Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching." John 14:23 

Being a Christ-lover means living within His guidelines, limitations, and expectations because we love Him.

"The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." Galatians 5:6

That's what frees our souls!
