Grace brings you freedom. What does that mean in real life? Even though every day we are tempted to and actually act & think in a way that we know is contrary to God's best, grace tells us that those corrupt desires are no longer a part of us. That is true freedom. The ability to choose God and what he wants for us. It is christianity for grown ups. We no longer need a guardian Paul writes in Galatians because we have been set free by Christ to freely follow and choose Him. That is our choice and today Andrew encourages us to choose life - we can sow either to our flesh or to the Spirit in us. One brings streams of life and one brings decay. That is why we are encouraged time & again to choose life. This is a strong, direct talk that will shake you up!
