You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature
Hockey Chat: When a player is called up to the big leagues of the NHL he has got the chance to make a name for himself and an impact on the hockey world. He knows it’s his big break. Years of training had lead up to this and now he’s been called upon to be the best player he can be. But if he uses that chance to be a puck-hog or run up the penalty minutes, he has not used his big opportunity wisely and he’ll be a big let down to the ones who believed in him.
Life Lesson: We have a freedom in Christ knowing that by His grace we will be in with him in heaven. But if we use that freedom as “sin insurance” and don’t act in ways to make him proud but just the opposite, we’ve done a great disrespect to the one who did his best to show us his love. It’s an abuse of the greatest gift we’ve ever been given.
