Galatians 5:13  For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity to indulge your flesh, but through love serve one another. 

We are in indulging people.  In the United States we have a big obesity problem from indulgence of food.  We have a big debt problem from indulgence in material things.  We wan what tastes good and what looks good or gives luxury.  This is because we try to fill the void in our hearts, lives and emotions only God can fill.  When we allow God to fill His place in us we have a full and abundant life and have no need of indulgence.  Our question is are we willing to trust God enough to fill all our needs over trying to fill them (unsuccessfully) on our own?  As this new year advances let’s put away our indulgences and walk in obedience, trust and love with God be the power of His Holy Spirit given to us through Jesus Christ.
