Freedom Understood and Applied

From Series: Right With God, Volume 2

Galatians 5:13-15  (ID: 1411)

The nature of Christian freedom, addressed in the letter to the Galatians, centers on an acceptance with and access to God that is made possible only through Christ. Alistair Begg reminds us that this freedom entails applying limits, expressing love, and fulfilling the law. Ultimately, Christian liberty allows us to live, love, and serve under the control of God and His Holy Spirit.


13For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 15But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
