I Am Free in Christ
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
Jesus Set You Free
You are no longer a slave to your sin, selfishness, fear, or past failures. As a free person in Jesus Christ, never allow allowing anyone to put you back under the law of bondage.
In the United States, we revel in our freedom. We are blessed to live in a country where we can express our faith in God and Jesus without fear of retaliation. Unfortunately, even though we live in a free country, many people still live in bondage to their hearts. They live as slaves to their fear, failures, and desires. Spiritual bondage can be just as debilitating as physical bondage. A person can be free to pursue happiness, but if they are in spiritual bondage, they may never even try.
Christ set you free. You are no longer in bondage. Christ came into this world to give you freedom. He set you free from your past, free from your fears, and free to be all God created you to be.
The word “free” here means liberty. It is the freedom to live at a higher level. It’s the freedom to live the empowered life Christ promised.
So many Christians live by the law. They have a set of rules they follow. If they break the rules, then they feel guilty and ashamed. They live the Christian life reliant on their striving and strength. It’s all about how hard they try and how well they perform. Christ has set you free from that type of living.
Christ has empowered and freed you to live not by a set of rules, but in a loving relationship with Jesus.
Look at that promise once again.
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
Make this declaration today.
- In Jesus Christ, I have freedom.
- I am not under the law or any set of rules.
- I live in an empowered, loving relationship with Christ.
- I will not allow myself to be brought back under the bondage of religion.
In Jesus Name,
