The Freedom to Serve – 6/22/20

Greg Eissens 

Galatians 5:13 – 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.

  

Have you ever watched a 3-D movie? As Images pop off the screen it makes me wonder, “How is this not real?” That is exactly what people should experience when they are sitting in front of a servant of Christ. Our service to others in the name of Jesus is more mesmerizing than a 3-D Movie. It should be so evident that the Holy Spirit is within us that others say to themselves, “How is this Jesus they speak of not real?” If your life was a movie would Jesus be the main star? Paul gives you the clear and straight forward insight to these type of actions as servants in Galatians 5:19-21 and 5:22-23.  

 

God help me to die to the ways of my flesh so that my life reflects the ways that glorify you. Let me adhere to the ways of the Spirit and not become conceited, provoking, and envious of others.
