This past week, we celebrated our nation's independence. As American's we love our freedom and think that true freedom is celebrated by having no restraints on our lives. I can do what I want, when I want and how I want. Yet, that is what the Galatians thought as well. Freedom in God meant doing things their way rather than living according to God's rules for their lives.
Certainly this sounds like we might be going back to a life of legalism! That is not the case. But is also true that living according to God's way of living is the only way to true freedom.
