Freedom to be Slaving

From Galatians 6: “. . . For you were called on freedom, brothers, only not the freedom into incentive to the flesh. But through the love, be slaving to one another. For all the law has been fulfilled in one word, “You shall be loving your associate as yourself.” Yet if you are biting and devouring one another, be looking out, lest you be consumed by one another. Yet I am saying, be walking in spirit, and you shall by no means be consummating desire of flesh. For the flesh is desiring against the spirit, yet the spirit against the flesh. For these are opposing one another, that you may not be doing whatever you are willing. Yet if you being led in spirit, you are not under law. Yet the works of the flesh are apparent, which are prostitution, uncleanness, wantonness, idolatry, drugging, enmities, strife, jealousy, fury, factions, dissensions, sects, envies, drunkenness, revelries, and the things like these, which I am saying before to you, down as I said before, that the ones practicing such things shall not be lot-appropriating God’s kingdom. Yet the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-restraint. Against such things there is no law. The ones of the Christ Jesus, yet, impale the flesh, together with its passions and desires . . .”

From Galatians 1: “. . . If I still pleased humans, I would not be a slave of Christ.”
