Because Jesus has given us all that we need for our salvation, we are free to look for ways to best serve His calling in our lives. We must stand firm in this freedom, however - being careful to avoid straying into the bonds of lawfulness or sinfulness.
Abram and Sarai did not wait on the promise of God, and decided to take matters into their own hands. Similarly, the church in Galatia was trying to add to the Lord’s promise. We are called to live in the freedom that God has given to us as a child of His promise. His promise is a grace that we could not manufacture, earn, or even think of.
To be a child of God means that we are promised to share in the Father’s inheritance. If we are children, we are also heirs. We are to live in the hope of our Heavenly future, and not to live in fear of our Earthly present.
This past Sunday we started our Sunday morning series on Sacred Pathways. It's based on the book Sacred Pathways by Gary L. Thomas which is all about connecting to God and how we relate to God. These aren't different pathways to Salvation, but ways to be more intimately connected to the God who has saved us. You can follow along with the verses at YouVersion.
