Love and spiritual fruit above lust and indulgence.
Today’s reading: Galatians 4-6.
“If I’m saved by faith, am I free to live as I please?”
Imagine that there was a celestial bus that carried the saved to heaven. What kind of ticket would be necessary to get on that bus? Paul argued in Galatians 3 that only justification by faith, not the keeping of the law, would provide that ticket. But what happens once a person punches that faith ticket and gets on the bus? How then shall we live? Paul addressed these questions in Galatians 5.
You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
