I was rereading the book of Galatians.
Chapter 5, verse 1, stood out to me as it so often does.
"So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law." (NLT)
The part about getting tied up again in the law has been catching my attention recently.
A footnote in my Bible echoes my thinking and that of the passage as well.
"We must stand against those who would enslave us with rules, methods, or special conditions for being saved or growing in Christ."
Recently I have seen people say that we need to dress a certain way, but not actually give specifics. I saw one comment that did give specifics. I wonder why not everyone agrees with the 'cut-and-dried' method he laid out? (just kidding)
It's not that the Bible isn't helpful. It is.
It is that the Bible isn't what we worship and praise and love and adore.
The Bible points us to Him. (John 5:39)
Why does everyone get so caught up in 'the right thing', just to miss the real thing?
