Great Responsibility

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.

 

Dear friends, July 4th we celebrate our freedom as a nation, a wonderful, wonderful gift from God. But I want to remind everyone of the freedom we have from sin because of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now, 2 Corinthians, that’s two Corinthians 3:17, and this is the whole ball game, that the Lord is Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. That’s right, we are free from the power of sin when we walk in the freedom of the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit gives us power. Now you know this, with great power come great responsibility. Do not use this freedom as an opportunity to sin. It is our responsibility to keep in step with the Holy Spirit.
