Free From The Law | Institute of Love
“For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2. Corinthians 3:17 NLT It is Christ who truly set you free and gave you this freedom. Now you need to make sure that you stay free, and not let yourself get tied up again in slavery to the law. (See Galatians 5:1 NLT) Take the religious obligation of paying tithes for instance. Because of Christ setting you free from being a slave to the law, you can now decide in your own heart how much money you should give. (See 2. Corinthians 9:7) Yes, you have been called to live in freedom! But this is not a freedom to be used to satisfy your sinful nature or as an excuse to do evil, no your freedom should be used to love your Christian brothers and sisters, serve one another in love, and respect everyone. (See Galatians 5:13 and 1. Peter 2:16-17) How awesome it is to live in the freedom of the Spirit of God!!!
