Grace always requires more than the Law ever did. Relationship will take you further than rules. And we see this play out in Galatians 5.
Self-control (or lack thereof) always reveals our priorities.
The world is known for its pride and bravado, but we can choose the way of meekness, just like Jesus did.
When we choose to be kind even though our flesh tells us to do the exact opposite, we are living like Jesus and are partaking in the miraculous.

Through Jesus’s redemptive work on the cross, we have been set free from those things that used to entangle us.
