I read this devotional today and thought it was worth sharing.
It begins with:
“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13
I love how we are to use our freedom to serve others. The word freedom today typically means a freedom of choice. It’s all about us and our wants. Here, Galatians says to USE our freedom to serve others…humbly in love. Whoa! There’s an idea. Most think of serving others as an obligation or as something we are forced or even paid to do. Just let the words “serve one another humbly in love” sink in for a sec. Think about the ways you serve today…who you serve today. Do you do it humbly in love? If the answer is no, then the next question is, do you know the freedom that only comes from Christ? (Freedom in Christ)
Here’s the full devotional: Wisdom Hunters for September 19, 2012 …I highly recommend reading it!
