Slippery Slope

Re:Verse passage – Galatians 5:1-15 (day seven)

A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. vs. 9

One bad apple spoils the barrel. It only takes a few degrees to get off course. We have heard these idioms time and time again, but the truth of the message is important to hear often. If we allow ourselves to compromise on our ideals in even minuscule situations, it begins a slippery slope that could lead to total corruption. We are not saying that going 75mph down 281 on my way to church this morning will lead me to apostasy, but it is a calling for us to think about the places where sin and other disruptors have a foothold into our lives. The Galatians in this instance found themselves immersed in a battle with legalism that threatened their entire trajectory as a church. It is important that we look for these areas in our own lives and solidify our theology, so that we do not fall into corruption individually or corporately.
