Freedom in Christ – Using it Wisely

Here’s a couple of good questions for Christians:  Am I using or abusing my freedom in Christ?  Am I flaunting or facilitating the freedom I have to serve others?…

This came to mind as I read Apostle Paul’s words this morning…

THOUGH I AM FREE AND BELONG TO NO ONE, I HAVE MADE MYSELF A SLAVE TO EVERYONE, TO WIN AS MANY AS POSSIBLE. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.  I DO ALL THIS FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL, that I may share in its blessings.” (From 1 Corinthians 9:19–23 NIV)

I don’t know about you, but I want to use the freedom I have in Christ to serve others and effectively communicate the gospel to them, don’t you?
