Self-Deception vs. Freedom

Are you living in Freedom today?
Or do you have a tendency to micromanage others?

It’s easy to read Scripture & believe you’ve got it.
But do you actually do what it says?

Being a doer of the Word brings Freedom. To you & those you love.

”Do not merely listen to the Word & so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.

“But whoever looks intently into The Perfect Law that gives Freedom, and continues in it not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it they will be blessed in what they do.” JAMES 1:22-25

Time for a Checkup?

No matter where you are in the process of life, it’s good to ask the Holy Spirit to help you evaluate your attitudes & actions using the following verses:

    • “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” MATTHEW 7:1-5

    • Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-7

    • It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. GALATIANS 5:1
    • You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh[a]; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” GALATIANS 5:13-14
