The freedom given to us should be to help the weak, serving and giving the poor. Make a living by lawful. As the word of God says: "You have been called to enjoy liberty, brothers; only, do not let the liberty be an opportunity for the flesh; instead, serve one another through love" (Galatians 5:13). But freedom is very dangerous in the hands of those who do not know how to use it. That is why the barbed wire, steel bars and concrete walls are used to imprison criminals. Or imagine if the fire is left burning in the dry forest, soon be hell fire. Freedom is not controlled can lead to chaos. Nothing is more apparent than in the Christian life. Believers are free from condemnation, punishment and guilt pressure. Fear, anxiety, and guilt have been replaced with peace, forgiveness, and freedom. Who is more free than the person whose spirit has been freed? Yet it is precisely here that we often fail. We enjoy the freedom to live casually, or consider what God entrusted as private property. We are trapped in a life that is only to please himself, especially in a prosperous society. The proper way to use the freedom is to serve others with the "faith which work by love" (Galatians 5:6;13). When we rely on the Holy Spirit and pour out energy in a loving God and helping others, work of the flesh which will destroy the control of God (Verses 16-21). Therefore, let us always use the freedom to build, not to ruin. As a flaming fire, freedom without limits is very dangerous. But if controlled, would be a blessing for many people. Freedom does not give the right to do what pleases us, but do what pleases God.
