Free at Last! Free at Last!

October 11, 2020 / Galatians 5:1-6

The door to freedom scares a lot of people. They prefer the comfort of the known, even if it means death to the uncertainty of the unknown.  As a result, very few people actually find freedom from the attitudes and habits that enslave them day after day. They live their entire lives under a captive cloud of condemnation just waiting to be shot down in front of a firing squad of self-righteous critics. The point of today’s message is to see that’s no way to live your life! God intended for us to live free, to enjoy life in His Son, and to enjoy Him in this life on our way to heaven.

  • Christ’s is the first price.  Because of Christ, we can stand firm in this freedom.
  • John 8:36 and Romans 8:1
  • Continual is the second cost of freedom.

II. The of Freedom (2-4)

  • (2) to keep the whole law.  Christ sets us free to fail and get forgiveness.
  • (3) to grace. You remove yourself from the present experience of grace. 

III. The of Freedom (5-6)

  • Paul closes by giving us a preview of the positive and better type of Christian life God has in store for us. 
  • Faith, hope, and love are virtues listed in verses 5 and 6.  These are the things that a believer.
  • Freedom is worth living for!
