We live in a sinful world, in sinful flesh, surrounded by enemies in the spiritual realm, and the Lord has allowed us to live among it all.  Christians are surrounded by opposition, but we are not stopped from living a Holy Spirit driven life.  We are free in Christ to live a redeemed, forgiven life, no matter what the world says, no matter what our flesh says, and no matter what the Church says.  We are free to speak the truth by faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Texts:  Galatians 5:1-15 and Luke 7:36-50
