Christ Made Us Free. So Stay That Way.
Galatians 5 : 13 . 25
Christ made us free. Stay that way.
Do not get chained all over again in the Law and its kind of religiousness.
Christian brothers + sisters, you were chosen to be free.
Be careful that you do not please your old selves by sinning because you are free.
Live this free life by loving and helping others.
You obey the whole Law when you do this one thing, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
But if you hurt others and make it hard for each other, watch out or you may be destroyed by each other.
I say this to you: Let the Holy Spirit lead you in each step!
Then you will not please your sinful old selves.
The things our old selves want to do are against what the Holy Spirit wants.
The Holy Spirit does not agree with what our sinful old selves want.
These two are against each other. So you cannot do what you want to do.
If you let the Holy Spirit lead you, the Law no longer has power over you.
The things your sinful old self wants to do are sexual sinful desires, wild living, worshiping false gods, witchcraft, hating, fighting, being jealous, being angry, arguing, dividing into little groups and thinking the other groups are wrong, false teaching, wanting something someone else has, killing other people, using strong drink, wild parties, and all things like these. I told you before and I am telling you again that those who do these things will have no place in the holy nation of God.
But the fruit that comes from having the Holy Spirit in our lives is: love, joy, peace, not giving up, being kind, being good, having faith, being gentle, and being the boss over our own desires. The Law is not against these things.
Those of us who belong to Christ have nailed our sinful old selves on His cross. Our sinful desires are now dead.
If the Holy Spirit is living in us, let us be led by Him in all things.
Let us not become proud in ways in which we should not.
We must not make bad and hard feelings among ourselves as Christians or make anyone jealous.
