Life With Him

Galatians 5:13 (New Century Version)

"My brothers and sisters, God called you to be free, but do not use your freedom as an excuse to do what pleases your sinful self. Serve each other with love."

This is just a reminder to all of us. Just because we know we are saved, and we know we can ask God to forgive us, and we know He will… this doesn’t give us an excuse to do the things that we know are WRONG. Simple as that. We take Him & His grace for granted too many times just to please ourselves. Because of course – ANY kind of sin feels good to some part of the body. No matter if it is physical or otherwise. Sin feels good to the flesh. Think about it. But keep in mind this:

Galatians 6:8 (New International Version)

"The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life."

So when we are ‘moaning & groaning’ about our miserable lives… remember… we may have caused our own destruction. Start living for Him (please the Spirit) and see how your life changes.
