A Fruitful Freedom

The love of Christ cuts us free from caring about what others think of us. In Him we have the approval and affection of the One whose opinion matters above all. So we’re free from the tyranny of people pleasing and reputation management. 

AND

The love of Christ compels us to impact and bless people in his name. We’re deeply concerned ambassadors, conscientious about not putting stumbling blocks in anyone’s way. We care about people’s perception. 

So, we don’t care, and we care the most. 

It’s using our freedom, to serve in love, in the realm of reputation. 

Easier said than done, but if we marinate in the message, increasingly cooperate with his cutting and compelling, we’ll see this fruitful freedom more and more in our lives.
