Being a Christ-follower is not about either legalism or lawlessness, but living by the Spirit. We are no longer a slave to sin nor a slave to the Law, but we voluntarily subject ourselves to serving God by serving one another in love. Following God’s decrees becomes not an obligation, but a reflection of treating other people with love.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.Galatians 5:13-15
