Empowered over Man's Rules
"The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath." Mark 2:27b-28What Jesus offers us is freedom from petty Rules of Men [be it religious legalism or political correctness or any other set of rules]. Under God's Laws we are not only freer [as compared to being under Rules of Men] but we are empowered to be men: to lead, guide and explore.
Of course we can temporarily choose to be under a set of rules [like a game of poker or football or chess], but they are only for a limited time. The rules of the land is similar but more lasting since we choose to live in a specific location [country, state, city] and even more so if we buy property in that location [and it would be worse if you choose to be enslaved by debt: i.e., mortgage].
How does all this affect my daily life? Hmm. But I am [still] working on my declaration of empowerment.
