A Vision for Freedom

A peek inside my journal....
"For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, 'you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" Galatians 5:13&14
These verses almost never cease to put a peace in my heart. When life seems so complicated and doctrines and issues are overwhelming, the Lord graciously reminds me, that it is humans who complicate life and the "law".

If I put my focus on serving, how much time would I have left to wonder how the law should be carried out in every detail? No doubt its necessary to attempt to discern these things. But where is my emphasize in life? If I was busy lovingly serving others, would the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place?

Kaylene,
I agree! We christians tend to make it so difficult. No wonder some people shy away from christians. Jesus made it easy for non-christians to see the way. He was the ultimate example of love.
Thanks for sharing!

You're right Christin! Wow, we need to be so careful about how we portray Christ to others... Thanks for your thoughts!

Like totally!
All human life seems to think that they were put on earth to complicate things! And if we as christians do not potray our LORD properly, then it will only make things worse!
Great thought!

When I am faithless, He is faithful.
When mine fail, His plans prevail.
When I fail, His mercy endures.
Without Him, I am nothing.
