Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

So we are free in Christ. What does that freedom look like? How do we live it?

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
                                                   --Galatians 5:16,17 TNIV

No longer in the bondage of sin, so we are free to live by the Spirit, and empowered. Empowered to say, "no," to the things that endeavor to enslave once again.

So how we live, how we choose, the footsteps we follow--they are a function of freedom to live by the Spirit of Christ. Living freely is following the Spirit of Christ. So let us be cautious when we find ourselves saying, "I can't!" because in Christ, we can.
