Galatians 5:1 says It was for freedom that Christ set us free: so keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.

Don’t do this. Don’t do that. Follow the rules or you will be in trouble. God is looking at you. God is mad at you. You better do what is right. On and on and on and on and on!

After a while that gets old and tiresome. All it is flesh motivated by the law. Self imposed standards to keep yout self in line. Sin management! Tell the truth, How is that working out for you. Operating under the law is a crazy cycle of disappointment and disappointment and failure. Listen, You can’t keep it. Sorry!

The law was NOT design to make you better or even help you get better. The law will never change you from the inside out. The best the law can do for you is to give you lifeless compliance if you use it as a sin management tool.

The church is in the saving business. That is through the blood and the life of Jesus Christ and Him alone. It Jesus plus nothing. Its none but Jesus. Its mercy triumphs over judgment. Its Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Its saved by Christ; kept by Christ. Its Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Its, Christ died, was buried, then rose. He reigns. Its, I am the way and the truth and the life.

That FREEDOM! Lets stop trying to manage sin through the laws and rules that we think should govern our lives. I think Jesus took care of the sin problem of the world on the cross. Be Christ conscience and not sin conscience and watch what happens next.

LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN!!!
