Then in, Galatians 5:14-26 Paul says, "For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love..." So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law (bondage)... But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law (bondage). Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other."
So in order for us to be living the free life that we so hunger for we should be about living God's way, rather than our way. So doing good or doing the right thing is actually living free. It's about giving ourselves wholeheartedly to the purpose for which we were created, God's purpose. It's about following His plan for us, that would be ultimate freedom, I would suspect. But this is something that we should each be in search of ... The life that God has intended we live ... our purpose on planet earth; to live, to love, to forgive, that is living free!
