Keeping it Real
The Community of the Free (part 17) | Sooner or later, our real identity becomes obvious to everyone; sooner or later we all get found out and our cover is blown! So, the question for each of us is this: Who are we and who are we trying to be? Are we children of God who are saved by grace and who are filled with the Spirit and are trying to keep step with the Spirit? Or are we people who give lip service to the Spirit and are really living in slavery to our sinful nature or to the law?
What we see Paul doing in this present section, is giving some concrete illustrations of what it means to live as a Christian who is guided by freedom in the Spirit. In other words, he is showing how Spirit-filled, Spirit-guided people should be living.
