C.     The yoke of Christ frees us to fulfill His will. We serve Christ free from such worries and burdens, But secondly, Christ fulfilled the Law so that we would not need to be burdened by trying to do it ourselves, for we could not possibly meet its requirements anyway, What a shame it is when we refuse to take advantage of the very freedom Christ has won for us, Imagine yourself living as a slave, when the king pledges his entire fortune to win your freedom from your master, By His grace, you are set free from your enslavement, But then imagine that despite the king’s payment, you voluntarily choose to remain in your enslavement, You opt to continue suffering under your burdens. I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Our hope. He is free from the guilt of sin because he has experienced God’s forgiveness. These four seminars helped me come up with four topics to take out of Galatians. So the outline for tonight in Chapter 5 has three points, First, Paul discusses two extreme and incorrect responses to grace, On the one hand, we can make the mistake of trying to combine grace and Law, On the other hand, we can make the opposite mistake of living a licentious lifestyle with no regulation or limits, Then thirdly, Paul will explain the proper middle ground that all Christians should seek, That is living in the grace of God, enjoying the freedom won for us on the cross, While always remaining under the control of the Spirit in holiness and self-restraint, Turning to Chapter 5, Paul opens with a thesis statement to set up the rest of the chapter, Paul’s opening statement sets forth the principle of a Christian’s relationship to the Law of Moses, There is no stronger statement in all the Bible on this topic, Highlight it, underline it, memorize it, and follow it, So much burden, misery, heartache and confusion could have been avoided in the history of the church if only more Christians understood this verse, First, Paul says it was for our freedom that Christ set us free, Christ released us from the obligations of the Mosaic Law so that we might serve Him freely, Under the Law, Gods people endured severe restrictions on the ways they could serve the Lord, But now Christ has fulfilled all that the Law required, both in His life and in His death, Jesus fulfilled our obligations under the Law on our behalf, so all that the Law required has been met in Him, That’s why Christ declared on the cross that it is finished, He was referring to His work under the Law, And the penalties of the Law had been paid, Therefore the Law itself was “finished” for those who accept Jesus’ accomplishment on their behalf, Therefore, we are now free to serve God without concern for what the Law says about who, when and how we may serve, Paul says Christ came for this very purpose, to set us free from these restrictions, Obviously, the first purpose in setting us free from Law was to save us from the penalty of the Law for our sin, We now live in freedom from fear of death and the judgment that follows. Galatians 5. The conquest – v. 18. A. 12. The answer, as we can already see, is to live by faith through the Spirit’s work in us, Paul’s words in this passage are a very short version of his teaching in Romans 7-8, He uses the metaphor of “walking” in the Spirit in the same way John does in his letters…living under the control of the Spirit, As long as we live in this sinful body, we will know and experience the draw of our flesh into sinful behaviors, But at the same time, we have the Spirit living in us telling us those desires are wrong and calling us to better choices, Every Christian knows both of these driving forces, Countless times a day we experience the flesh tempting us to do something that isn’t in keeping with love, From the simplest things like our laziness of throwing litter on the ground, leaving the toilet seat up, or failing to yield to another driver, To more significant things like breaking laws, cheating customers, lying to coworkers, or gossiping and slandering others, To the serious sins of sexual immorality, violence and idolatry in various forms, But at the same time, we know the voice of the Shepherd, who calls us by His Spirit to move away from these things even as we experience the draw of the flesh, When we first contemplate dropping that piece of litter or breaking that law or spreading that false word, it is then we also encountered an alternative thought, We felt an uneasiness and perhaps hesitated to think about our course of action in the moment, That’s the moment when you are hearing from the Spirit, We can’t say we don’t hear the Lord talking to us, because we all know that moment, Paul says the Spirit and flesh are always opposed to one another, Which means those split second moments of indecision or contemplation are the evidence of two forces pulling us in different directions (Romans 7), The sinful plan of action formed in your flesh, and it wants to move forward, But then immediately a different thought came to mind, And in that moment, you’re making a decision about who to listen to, Example: As you leave the dish on the counter, you remember that it would be better to put it in the dishwasher, Either you go with the first thought or you move with the Spirit’s influence, One way shows love for yourself and the other shows love for God and others, We’ve all been there, but depending on how you’ve chosen to respond in the past, you may find one voice growing more persuasive over time while the other fades, If you have made a habit of listening to the flesh, then you will begin to deaden your sensitivity to the Spirit, So that when you face one of those split second decision moments, your hesitation will be even shorter, Your past pattern of giving in to the flesh will make your choice almost reflexive, Without any thought, you go with the familiar choice, The Spirit never goes silent, but we can become practiced at ignoring Him – to our own destruction, On the other hand, we can become practiced at listening to the Spirit and disciplining the flesh, We take every opportunity to say yes to the Spirit and deny our flesh its desires, At the first sign of conflict between these two voices, we move quickly and with determination to follow the Spirit, Billy Graham told a story to illustrate the competition between the flesh and Spirit. The coming day will burn them up,” says the Lord who rules over all. In fact, it never accomplished that purpose and it can never do so.

Essentially, this is the situation Christians assume when they legalistically mix grace and Law, They assume upon themselves a limited form of slavery, thinking they please the Lord by voluntarily adopting restrictions He intended for an entirely different purpose, In reality, they throw His gift of freedom in His face, so to speak, They refuse to live in the freedom Christ won through His perfect life and sacrificial death, They haven’t lost salvation, of course, but they are forfeiting the freedom grace provides, In his letter to the Colossians, Paul warns the church not to succumb to pressure to re-enter slavery to Law, Paul commands us not to allow someone to defraud us of our prize, The “prize” is a reference to liberty, that is our freedom to live without regard to Law. e.       Drunkenness and revellings (orgies). 5:13  For you were called to  freedom, brethren;  only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love  serve one another.

The answer, as we can already see, is to live by faith through the Spirit’s work in us, Paul’s words in this passage are a very short version of his teaching in Romans 7-8, He uses the metaphor of “walking” in the Spirit in the same way John does in his letters…living under the control of the Spirit, As long as we live in this sinful body, we will know and experience the draw of our flesh into sinful behaviors, But at the same time, we have the Spirit living in us telling us those desires are wrong and calling us to better choices, Every Christian knows both of these driving forces, Countless times a day we experience the flesh tempting us to do something that isn’t in keeping with love, From the simplest things like our laziness of throwing litter on the ground, leaving the toilet seat up, or failing to yield to another driver, To more significant things like breaking laws, cheating customers, lying to coworkers, or gossiping and slandering others, To the serious sins of sexual immorality, violence and idolatry in various forms, But at the same time, we know the voice of the Shepherd, who calls us by His Spirit to move away from these things even as we experience the draw of the flesh, When we first contemplate dropping that piece of litter or breaking that law or spreading that false word, it is then we also encountered an alternative thought, We felt an uneasiness and perhaps hesitated to think about our course of action in the moment, That’s the moment when you are hearing from the Spirit, We can’t say we don’t hear the Lord talking to us, because we all know that moment, Paul says the Spirit and flesh are always opposed to one another, Which means those split second moments of indecision or contemplation are the evidence of two forces pulling us in different directions (Romans 7), The sinful plan of action formed in your flesh, and it wants to move forward, But then immediately a different thought came to mind, And in that moment, you’re making a decision about who to listen to, Example: As you leave the dish on the counter, you remember that it would be better to put it in the dishwasher, Either you go with the first thought or you move with the Spirit’s influence, One way shows love for yourself and the other shows love for God and others, We’ve all been there, but depending on how you’ve chosen to respond in the past, you may find one voice growing more persuasive over time while the other fades, If you have made a habit of listening to the flesh, then you will begin to deaden your sensitivity to the Spirit, So that when you face one of those split second decision moments, your hesitation will be even shorter, Your past pattern of giving in to the flesh will make your choice almost reflexive, Without any thought, you go with the familiar choice, The Spirit never goes silent, but we can become practiced at ignoring Him – to our own destruction, On the other hand, we can become practiced at listening to the Spirit and disciplining the flesh, We take every opportunity to say yes to the Spirit and deny our flesh its desires, At the first sign of conflict between these two voices, we move quickly and with determination to follow the Spirit, Billy Graham told a story to illustrate the competition between the flesh and Spirit. The coming day will burn them up,” says the Lord who rules over all. In fact, it never accomplished that purpose and it can never do so.

Essentially, this is the situation Christians assume when they legalistically mix grace and Law, They assume upon themselves a limited form of slavery, thinking they please the Lord by voluntarily adopting restrictions He intended for an entirely different purpose, In reality, they throw His gift of freedom in His face, so to speak, They refuse to live in the freedom Christ won through His perfect life and sacrificial death, They haven’t lost salvation, of course, but they are forfeiting the freedom grace provides, In his letter to the Colossians, Paul warns the church not to succumb to pressure to re-enter slavery to Law, Paul commands us not to allow someone to defraud us of our prize, The “prize” is a reference to liberty, that is our freedom to live without regard to Law. e.       Drunkenness and revellings (orgies). 5:13  For you were called to  freedom, brethren;  only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love  serve one another.
