True Liberty Only Comes in a Relationship
Galatians 5:1 (KJB) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Many well-intentioned people get true liberty and the law of Christ spiritually twisted and tangled. This confusion serves to make Christians who are rigid, knotted and even acting rote about things of God. True liberty in Christ always matches perfectly and blends seamlessly with the commandments and precepts found in His Word. For God is holy and cannot offer anything that sets indifferently to His holiness and perfection.
Liberty comes in a spiritual relationship with God while bondage comes in spiritual separation from God.
Liberty in Christ is a coming together or a seamless blending of His perfect law and grace. While bondage and sin comes with a separation from Christ. These two things, liberty, and bondage are not two sides of the same coin.
