Print Friendly, PDF & Email


For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

In this Podcast, we discuss the fact that:
  • We don’t live under the Bondage of an external system of rules or codes.
  • We live under the Internal restraints of the Holy Spirit.

We have been called to Christian Liberty
  • Galatians 5:13
  • We are not bound by the Law for Righteousness sake
    • Romans 10:4
  • Doesn’t Mean that we are free to do whatever we want (Jeremiah 17:9)
    • In Society today
      • Everyone is seeking to do their “own” thing
      • Authority is constantly under attack
        • This is why the Bible is constantly under attack
          • The Bible is our Final Authority in all matters of Faith and Practice.
Liberty is not Freedom to live in Sin
  • Living in Sin isn’t freedom from a biblical perspective
    • John 8:34
  • We are no longer servants of Sin
    • John 8:36
  • We have to choose who we are servants too
    • Romans 6:1-16
      • Servants to Sin or Servants to Righteousness
We have not been called to Lawlessness
  • Paul was accused
    • Antinomianism
      • Against the law
        • Anti = Against
        • Nomian = Law
      • Charged Paul with rejecting Gods Law
        • They believed that you had to follow the Law to restrain yourself from living in Sin
      • Paul wasn’t teaching that we can live any way that our Flesh desires
        • Have you ever Read the Pauline Epistles?
          • Romans 7:1-12
          • Ephesians 4:21-32
          • Colossians 3:5-10
        • Paul was teaching that the Law had changed from an External Code of Conduct to a Personal Relationship with God
          • Christ resides “in” you
            • Colossians 1:27
            • Romans 8:9
          • We don’t live under the Bondage of an External System
          • We Live under the Internal Restraints of the Holy Spirit
Paul defines Christian Liberty for us
  • Galatians 5:13-16
    • The Law wasn’t set aside
    • The Law just went Inside
Three Things that Christian Liberty Is Not 
  1. Freedom to Feed the Flesh (Galatians 5:13)
  2. Freedom to Hurt Others (Galatians 5:13, Ephesians 5:29)
  3. Freedom to ignore the Law (Galatians 5:14-16)
Christian Liberty is Freedom from the Bindings of the Law
  • Exodus 21:1-6
    • What does this have to do with Christian Liberty?
      • The servant serves for six years under a Legalistic Bondage
        • Why?
          • He didn’t have a choice
        • The Seventh Year he can walk away free
          • What does he do with his freedom?
            • He wants to continue to serve
          • How did his service change?
            • Went from a requirement to a desire
          • We are Free
            • Not to disobey
            • But to do what is right
              • Not because we have to
              • Because we want to
