Independence

July 1, 2007

        Galatians 5:1-15

KEY BIBLE VERSE: (Gal 5:1 NIV)  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

 

Freedom in Christ is the freedom to serve. Christ died to set us free from sin and from a long list of laws and regulations. Christ came to set us free—not free to do whatever we want because that would lead back into slavery to our selfish desires. Rather, thanks to Christ, we are now free and able to do what was impossible before—to live unselfishly. Those who appeal to their freedom so that they can have their own way or indulge their desires are falling back into sin. But it is also wrong to put a burden of law keeping on Christians. We must stand against those who would enslave us with rules, methods, or special conditions for being saved or growing in Christ.

 

What are the limits of human independence?

 

God’s commands are limits for our independence. 

 

Healthy parenting includes giving children healthy independence.

 

Human independence is an opportunity to help others.
