Galatians 5:13

“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”

Regardless of pedigree or status in life, people desire liberty. Within every human heart is the longing for freedom, and enslaved people will do all they can to secure it—even to the point of shedding blood. Yet the Bible declares there is only one Man’s blood that liberates mankind, thus freeing us from the ultimate enslavement—that of sin and its awful consequences.

The precious blood of Jesus Christ gave us the greatest liberty of all—we have the freedom to live in a whole new way. Christian liberty presents us with opportunities and choices every day. In our liberty, we can feed our fleshly appetites to the detriment of others or, in love, choose to serve one another. Why choose the way of love? Because our Savior did.

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)

Our liberator led the way. No greater example did Christ leave us than to be actively and practically serving one another in this life. We serve God because we love Him, but Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor as ourselves. That means love for our Savior is the supreme motivator for loving others.

Love is the grandest expression of our freedom that a soul can know. May each of us, in our blood-bought liberty, choose to serve one another.

Awaiting His Return,
