Proverbs of a 39 yr old man.

You put yourself at risk. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is edifying. You put yourself at risk when you disobey Gods word. People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD. There are things in life that are good for food, desirable to look at, and can make you wise and insightful. But it will kill you! Without God your moral compass is useless. We are to live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Grace is not license to sin. The believer should not live as if “everything is permissible.” Praise God, the Christian is free from the burden of attempting to earn salvation, but many have perverted and diluted the message of freedom to justify sinful lifestyles. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. For in Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set you free from the law of sin and death. Jesus the Living Word living in us through Holy Spirit gives us the freedom from the flesh that we so desperately need. This is how we can begin to have holy desires that come from the heart of God into ours. We start to lose desire for the things of this world and want the things of the Spirit. Freely choosing in your heart things that are holy and true. When we start twisting Gods word for our evil desires and flesh we lose the freedom that Jesus died to give on the Cross. He died and rose again so that we would live a new life pursuing Him and His Righteousness. Jesus kept the law perfectly for us so that we could experience his law of love in our hearts. Lets grow up spiritually so we are no longer slaves to sin. As we mature in our faith we recognize that Jesus must be our only Master. Obedience to Him will save us from abusing Gods grace for our foolish pride. Live under Christ's authority and enjoy the freedom he provides us to grow in grace and peace. Obedience is like a well built Jenga tower. A building upon our faith while striving to keep the integrity and structure God has set up for us through the Gospel. But I see people removing piece by piece from this tower because they compromise their morals in the name of freedom. Which causing them to stumble and fall. Allow the LORD today to make you a strong tower.

Study Gal. 5:13
