Liberty on a Tightrope

Artwork for Balancing Grace with Love

Balance. That’s the ticket. While Christ is the bulwark of balance, our Adversary is the expert of extremes. Satan will do anything to disturb our spiritual equilibrium, move us off centre, and tempt us into an out-of-balance lifestyle, one that is “too much.” For example: Christian liberty. God’s desire is that we, His people, fully enjoy our freedom in Christ. However, there must be self-imposed boundaries or we will become self-serving, independent-minded, and careless rebels with no regard for others. The last 11 verses of Romans 14 address this issue.
