Freedom! No longer in bondage!
The good news is, we don’t have to live in bondage to self and sin any longer! We can live a life of moral and spiritual freedom.
The world’s lie is that doing the things the Bible forbids is freedom… Surprise! Surprise!! Surprise!!! That just isn’t so… instead it leads to bondage, guilt, and regrets. More than that, it leads to death!
Christ offers freedom… moral and spiritual freedom. Serving the Lord is freedom!! One day after another moving out of bondage and into the adventure of freedom in Christ! I read about it this morning in the Bible…
“Shall we go on sinning because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not! Do you not know that if you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness? … Having been freed from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness… Just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification… Now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you have your benefit leading to sanctification, and the end is eternal life! For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord!!” (from Romans 6:15–23 NET Bible)
I’m determined to escape the “payoff” of sin! Instead, I want to explore every aspect and dimension of “freedom in Christ” available to me! Don’t you? Living in freedom!!
