Freed to Serve, Part 1
The Apostle Paul starts to develop what it means to be spiritually free: believers are free from the condemnation of the law; believers are free from the doctrines of men. However, this does not mean that believers are free from all obligation to the law and one another. The new life that the Spirit gives to those who have faith in Christ creates a community in which believers must properly use their spiritual freedom. And the first obligation Paul gives us is that we must not use our spiritual freedom as an opportunity to indulge the flesh.
