Lord is saying. You are a work in progress. Enjoy
yourself as I enjoy you. I delight in your moments. I delight
in your days. Look back and sense the joy I felt watching you
today. Today as you looked to me for help, for the decisions and
for guidance. Today I saw you stepping out in faith again, not
really knowing but trusting that I was by your side. I delight
in you and I delight in your moments. I created you and love everything
about you. Enjoy my enjoyment!!
What is the
law of liberty?
grow up they are entrusted to make their own decisions and are
no longer under the threat of punishment for purposes of training.
We who have come to faith in Christ, are trusted by God now to
live a life of faith which works by love, by the power of the
before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for
the faith which would afterward be revealed.
Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we
might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are
no longer under a tutor. For you are all sons of God through faith
in Christ Jesus.Galatians 3:23-26.
This wonderful privilege of our Father's trust should not be abused
but taken advantage of to full, and enjoyed to fulfil our true
potential and destiny in freedom.
free, yet not using your liberty as a cloak for vice, but as servants
of God.1 Peter 2:16.
you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty
as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
sums up in the following passage, how to use our 'Royal rights'
as kings and priests with graciousness and excellence. Our behaviour
as children of God is to supercede the old Mosaic law.
17:24-27 And when they had come to Capernaum, those who received
the temple tax came to Peter and said, "Does your Teacher
not pay the temple tax?'' He said, "Yes.'' And when he had
come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, "What
do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take
customs or taxes, from their own sons or from strangers?''
Peter said to Him, "From strangers.'' Jesus said to him,
"Then the sons are free. "Nevertheless, lest we offend
them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes
up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a
piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.''
liberty is to be guarded jealously for it was for freedom that
Christ has set us free, and we are warned to stand fast in our
liberty. We should not let anyone take our liberty from us and
put us again under bondage.
fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free,
and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.Galatians
We should guard
other's freedom and not try to enslave them for our own ends,
especially by using the word of God in such a way to try to put
them back under the law. We should act and speak like those who
shall be judged by the law of liberty.
If you really fulfill the royal law according
to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself,''
you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are
convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever shall keep
the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.
. For He who said, "Do not commit adultery,'' also said,
"Do not murder.'' Now if you do not commit adultery, but
you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. . So
speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.James
We should never
use this liberty to hurt others, but to let the fruits of the
Spirit, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control rule in our lives
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such
there is no law. . And those who are Christ's have crucified the
flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit,
let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking
one another, envying one another. Galatians 5: 23-26
And ye shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free. John 8: 32.
sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the
law, but under grace.Romans 6: 14
