13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Galatians 5:13
We have been given liberty through Jesus Christ. But the liberty we have in Christ is not to be spent on selfish gain. It is to be used simply for serving and love one another. It is impossible to truly love without knowing Jesus Christ. It is only through the freedom that one has in Christ that it enables one to truly serve and love another.
Our salvation we have in Christ is a gift from Almighty God. May we be wise stewards of the gift we have been given. It is not earned, it is simply received. May we understand how precious the gift is that God has given us and the price that Jesus truly paid so that we could be free. Because when we use the freedom we have in Christ to pursue the selfish desires within us we simply make a mockery of all that Jesus has accomplished.
