Definition: My Freedom: The position God has given me through Jesus Christ. (July 17, 2017)

1. New position ordained by Jesus Christ

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. (NKJV) Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (NIV) Galatians 5:1

  • liberty

Old position the original nature of sin of man:

  • bondage
  • yoke of slavery

2. Governed by faith through Jesus Christ not law

Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. Galatians 5:2-6

  • natural living governed by law: 2 types of law: circumcision and non circumcision. Galatians 5:6
  • spiritual living governed by faith
    • live through Christ by faith Galatians 5:6

Challenge to man:

  • not to depend on the law but to depend on grace through Jesus Christ . Galatians 5:1
  • if circumcised then he becomes a debtor to the law. Galatians 5:3
  • If we depend on law are fallen / estranged from grace. Galatians 5:4
  • our modus operandi / way of living is to live by righteousness by faith Galatians 5:5

3. Governed by faith working through love through Jesus Christ 

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. Galatians 5:6

  • walk of faith
  • walk through love
  • wrought / made possible by / though Jesus Christ

4. Governed by love the fulfilment of the Law

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one wordeven in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! Galatians 5:14,15

5. The downside of freedom 

13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

  • freedom as understood by sinful man – opportunity to sin

All scriptures from Kew King James Version (NKJV)
