The Life of Freedom

 

The Life of Freedom     1-7-18

          Text:   Galatians 5:13-26

                
             The two choices:

 

Freedom from the law to indulge the flesh
         Licentiousness
                 Living without external restraints
                    Disregard for rules or standards

         Narcissism
                 My goal is my happiness
                 Self-satisfaction is the highest value
         Self-Centered Behaviors
                 Self-indulgence:  I want this; I deserve this; I am entitled
                   Sociopathic: unwilling to value anything beyond their own self-interest

Freedom from the law to serve one another
         Humility
                 Not low self-esteem, but rather esteeming others highly
         Love
                “you before me” 
         Serve one Another
                To act for the benefit of another

         Viewing oneself as a part of a greater whole.

                   Community, Family, Cause, or Church.
