Being Sinful

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters.  But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.  Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love (Galatians 5:13)

There isn’t a time in the day that I don’t go about grumbling something about someone, throwing my judgments and not using my freedom to freely love.  It is hard and painful to love people who don’t love you back freely.  The sinful nature of being human cause one to wonder what will it really be like to be free.  There just isn’t a second in the day that doesn’t go by without being sinful, the very nature of being human is the sinful being we are.

But, we are freed of sin by casting our eyes to Jesus Christ.  He bares our sin so that we are free from the bondage of sin.  And it is only through Jesus Christ can we be truly free.  Therefore, our freedom from sin is not only to be used to free ourselves, but to show love and grace to one another.  It may not come easy, but through Jesus Christ we gain our freedom.
