{Galatians 5:13-14 ESV}
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

“You were created to be free. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you’re also called to be free. Yet to experience this freedom there must first be an uprising—revolution of the soul. This is exactly what Jesus Christ calls you to. Your liberation will require you to see beyond the illusion of freedom—free acts that lead to bondage. Our freedom must never be about us alone. Freedom is the gift of serving others out of love. This is the freedom that only God can give, where we once again become like Him. It is here and only here that freedom exists without boundaries. You are free to love without limit, to forgive, to be merciful, to be generous, to be compassionate, to risk, to sacrifice, to enjoy, and to live.”

Erwin McManus, Uprising, p. 12

Questions to consider:

  • How can freedom lead us back to slavery?
  • Why does God want us to be free?
  • What is one thing you can do today that makes use of the freedom you have in Jesus?
