With Freedom Comes Responsibility (Plain Bible Teaching)

Plain Bible Teaching: The First Ten Years

The following is an excerpt from the book, Plain Bible Teaching: The First Ten Years.

God desires us to be free, but this does not mean we are free to live as we please. Paul told the churches of Galatia: “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another” (Galatians 5:13). To the Romans he said, “But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness” (Romans 6:17-18).

We have a divine obligation to serve God and do good to others. Let us use the great gift of freedom we have been given to carry out these responsibilities. Do not neglect to show gratitude for your God-given liberties. Pray also that these liberties might be preserved for us and our children and be extended to others as well, and that we, to whatever extent we are able, would help lead others to the freedom that God desires for us to have.
