Quick Note: Pastor Bill Away

Just a quick update this week. I am away this week at continuing education. The blog will resume its regular posting schedule next week.
A quick thought for you all:
The Apostle Paul states in Galatians 5:1 (ESV) "For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." One of the challenges of the Christian walk is an attempt to return to the yoke of slavery of sin. We are a people who claim to love liberty above all else, yet when it comes to actual freedom--the freedom to do what is right--we often fall back to the lesser and demonic freedom of choosing between good and evil. Christ has set us free from this false freedom and its hidden yoke. You are free to live with Christ here and now and to express that freedom by doing what is right. The enemy wants you to be discouraged, depressed and ineffective. Christ not only wants you to be free, he has set you free in his death and resurrection. Be free and do not let anyone or anything force back into the yoke of sin.
