Use your freedom // 01-07-21

“It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don’t use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows.” Galatians‬ ‭5:13 MSG‬‬

The most dangerous place for me to be is on my own in my head consumed with my thoughts of what I haven’t got, what I want, and what I think I need. In my experience that focus on self always leads to a sense of dissatisfaction and misery! Jesus said if you try to cling to your life you’ll lose it, but if you give it away for His sake, you’ll find it! Being set free from that slavery to self, able to focus on the will of God, to love others, to shine light, is what makes all the difference! Father, help me to live this day to the full, being true to You in every way. Jesus, help me to give myself away to others, being kind to everyone I meet. Spirit, help me to love the lost, proclaiming Christ in all I do and say. Amen. 🙌🏼😊❤️
