#4 Freed for Growth

Freedom is a fantastic thing.  But as Christians, we aren’t free to do as we please.  Rather – in response to god’s incredible love for us – we are free to reach out to those around us with love (5:14)

But we don’t always show love to others.  Why?  Because there’s a battle going on inside of us!  The battle between the flesh (5:16-17, 19-21) and the Spirit (5:22-23)

At the heart of the Spirit filled life is change. It is to be changed by the Spirit to develop the character of Jesus.  And that’s our life long call – to grow more and more like Jesus.

Galatians 5:13-26

John 16:7-15
