After discussing the purpose of the law, Paul went on to say, “Freedom is what we have – Christ has set us free!” (Galatians 5:1) How did Christ set us free? Are we “free” to now break the commandments, to cheat, steal, murder, and so on? In fact, from a certain perspective, Jesus seems to make the law more difficult. He goes beyond the command, “Do not murder” to now say, “Don’t hate” and even “Love your enemies”. In what sense are we now “free” as Christians? The book of Galatians is a great place to understand what freedom is all about.
