πŸ‘‘ Two Aspects Of Christian Liberty

β€œAnd ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free… If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (JohnΒ 8:32,36).

The true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ enjoys glorious liberty, and our Lord Himself said that there are no strings attached… β€œYe shall be free indeed,” free even from the most oppressive of all slave masters: sin. While the Law never saved one man from sin, the Lord Jesus, by His death on Calvary did, for we read that β€œChrist died for our sins.”

Therefore the Apostle wrote by divine inspiration: β€œStand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Gal. 5:1). His letters thunder severe rebukes against believers who β€œdesire to be under the law.” To the Colossian Christians he wrote:

β€œLet no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days; which are a shadow of things to come; but the body [substance] is of Christ” (Col.Β 2:16,17).

But true liberty is used for good, otherwise it only reverts to bondage again, for whatever overcomes a man becomes his master (II Pet.Β 2:19), and doing evil can only harm ourselves and others. Thus the Apostle says further:

β€œBut take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak” (I Cor. 8:9).

β€œFor, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another” (Gal.Β 5:13).

β€œβ€¦Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth” (Rom.Β 14:22). source
