"Where Friendship Is More Than A Word And Christ Is The Head"

Monthly Training Meditation

JUNE 2018

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Main Idea—
God does not want us in bondage to self-effort;
instead God wants us to allow the Holy Spirit freedom to work in our lives.  

Scriptural Context—
Paul contrasts the Old and New Covenants:

Old Covenant
• written on tablets of stone
• brought death
• transitory
• came with glory


New Covenant
• written on the heart
• gives life
• brings righteousness
• lasts forever
• came with even more glory

Leadership Lesson—
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom…
• to belong
• to serve
• to be guided
• to witness
• to learn
• to produce
God never intended for us to live self-defeating lives. Instead, God wants the freedom of the Holy Spirit working in our lives every day.  
Life Application—
• Because the Holy Spirit is present within us, all we need to do is embrace and receive the Spirit by faith.
• Liberty is the right to discipline ourselves so that there is no need to be disciplined by others.
• When believers live the Gospel, non-believers will be more apt to listen to the Gospel.
