One of the most thrilling truths of our salvation is the reality that God called us. He took the initiative! This is seen way back in the Garden of Eden when the first words out of the mouth of God after Adam and Eve’s sin were, “Adam, where are you?” God has been calling people to Himself ever since. In fact, being saved is synonymous with being called (Romans 8:30). Among the many privileges we are called to, Galatians 5:13 declares we are called to freedom.
- Freedom’s call is a call to liberty.
- Freedom’s call is a caution against license.
- Freedom’s call is a command to love.
Our liberty in Christ is not freedom to do what we want, but the freedom to do what God wants!
