Galatians Devotional 39

The Apostle Paul in identifying the spiritual conflict between your flesh and the Spirit using this allegory says, “But what does the Scripture say? ‘Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.’ So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman” (Gal 4:29-31). In other words, as a Christian you experience this conflict between allowing the Lord Jesus to be your life and direction or continuing to default to your creative and natural personhood that leads to failure. Remember, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery” (Gal 5:1).
