Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand!! Galatians 5:1a (MSG)

Don’t miss out in the freedom Christ has for your life. The “doorway” to freedom is open to all.

Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows. For everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That’s an act of true freedom. Galatians 5:13-14 (MSG)
