Gal 5:13-18

13You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature[a]; rather, serve one another in love. 14The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."[b] 15If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
Life by the Spirit
16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

My thoughts:
We are given freedom to do anything, anything that is beneficial but not everything that is sinful. If we follow our spirit, definitely we will guide by God's law. Law that is invisible and applicable to everything in the world.

Like an angel and devil in our heart. Sometimes, we wanted to do things that we like, things that we desire for or maybe things that will only lead to destruction. In the other hand, God will send someone to us to remind about his purpose. It depends whether our choice is with God or our desires. The decision made is not only to move towards God's purpose but also to make our world a better place. Sounds easy but it seems tough when we face it. All the best to all the people around me in facing it.
