We are born sinners, therefore we have a decision to make. Do we continue to live in bondage, or do we step out in faith accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? With Jesus we can experience true spiritual freedom, we don’t have to be a slave to sin. This is an imperative decision for all, the choice is yours.
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1. Devotion from Daily in Christ: There is always a price to pay for freedom, and the moment we take our freedom for granted, we run the risk of losing it. Freedom in Christ from our sinful nature and the God of this world is the inheritance of every believer.
Christ has set you free through His victory over sin and death on the cross. But if you have lost a measure of your freedom because you have failed to stand firm in the faith or you have disobeyed God, it is your responsibility to do whatever is necessary to maintain a right relationship with God. Your eternal destiny is not at stake; you are secure in Christ. But daily victory in Him will be tenuous at best if you fail to assume your responsibility to maintain your freedom in Christ. We worship God to keep His divine attributes constantly before us in order to counter Satan’s lies!
I read this a couple of times just pondering the power in these words. We have freedom, and we have the victory in Christ, Jesus. It reminded me how important it is to seek His face as soon as we wake up every day. It truly makes a difference, and it continues to get better. We must keep our eyes on Jesus for He is the source of our strength. Thank you Lord.
