The Fight For True Freedom

Galatians 5:13-18


What is freedom?

1) Christian freedom is freedom from sin, not freedom to sin

2) Christian freedom is freedom for service, not freedom for selfishness

3) Christian freedom is freedom to obey, not freedom to disobey


Romans 8:3-4

By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 


How do I exercise freedom?

1) Walk by the Spirit

2) Wage war


Win the battles by confronting the problems: 

  1. Lack of a wartime mentality
  2. Lack of an understanding of where the battle is fought
  3. Lack of an understanding of how to fight
  4. Lack of an understanding of the outcome
