A misconception in the body of Christ is rule following. A lot of people view Christianity as a bunch of rules one has to follow in order to be a “good Christian”. With these rules, people feel like their freedom of being themselves is being taken away. Yes, there are a set of commands for us to follow, but that’s only for our best interest, not God’s approval. Following God’s commands is no different from following instructions to assemble a table. For best results in our lives, follow His commands.

To make matter’s worse, there are people who create rules and traditions not based in the Word of God. They’ll tell a woman not to wear make-up, tell people it’s a sin to listen to secular music, or condemn someone for playing cards. That’s not scriptural.

Jesus came so that we can have freedom (John 8:36). We can be free from the 600 laws in the Law of Moses (Rom. 7:6). We can be free from the traditions of men. We are free. By having a relationship with God through Jesus, the correct way to live this life is being led by the Spirit of God (Rom. 8:14). The Spirit will tell us when to read our bibles, when to relax and watch a movie, and when to handle business.

Don’t be intimidated by Christianity by attempting to accomplish all these Old Covenant rules and traditions of men for God’s approval. Be free and enjoy life as the Spirit leads.

Romans 7:6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.
