In Short

1

Christ fulfilled God’s Law on behalf of all people.

“Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”
Romans 10:4

“Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.”
Galatians 2:16-17

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:1-2

Christians will use their Christ-won freedom wisely for the sake of others and the gospel.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
Galatians 5:13

“Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”
1 Corinthians 8:9

“Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.”
1 Corinthians 9:19

Christians will cling to their freedom when faced with man-made laws and false teachings.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:1

“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”
1 Timothy 4:16

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Galatians 6:14
