Free In Christ

‘It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.’ (Galatians 5:1)

Congratulations! You’ve been completely set free.

By the grace of God. Through the work of Christ. You’re now free of all shackles.

Free from sin. Free from curses. Free from fear.

Jesus has carried your yoke. He took on your punishment. He died in your place.

Go free. Go in love. Stand firm in your newfound freedom. Do not let yourself be weighed down again by the tricks of the evil one.

You’re free. Free to stand in God’s presence. Free to receive His blessings. Free to give. Free to love. Free to live.

Rest beloved. Rest in freedom. For Jesus’ work is finished. It is done. Let it be so.

Be Greatly Blessed!

 
Prayer:

Father, thank you for the freedom that you’ve given me through Christ.

The freedom to be who I am in your presence.

Forgive me for my trying to please you through my works. For this does not please you at all.

Instead, shine your light and love into my heart and give me fresh revelation and understanding of what Jesus has already done.

Help me to live in such a way that my faith in Christ is all that matters.

I now receive the life of freedom you’ve so graciously gifted me.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Additional Thoughts:

Almost from the beginning there has been forces at work within Christianity that try to destroy the good news of salvation. Such forces that deny the work of Jesus Christ at Calvary and instead proclaim that one’s salvation is dependent upon what we do or don’t do.

In short, God’s favour is earned by good works and good behaviour. If our righteousness could be achieved this way, then wouldn’t Christ’s death have been in vain and the grace of God made obsolete?

‘You are observing special days and months and seasons and years! I fear for you that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you.’ Galatians 4:10-11

Paul expressed great concern for the church in Galatia who were turning back to those weak and miserable principles that kept them enslaved.

He feared all his instruction had been a wasted effort. Freedom, Paul said, is found not in the works of the law, but through faith in Jesus Christ.

Only those who have a relationship built on faith in Christ are free, all others are under a yoke of slavery.

The burdensome yoke of religious works and observances, which held the Galatian church in a state of slavery, obstructs us from knowing Christ in the way He wants us to know Him.

We are to devote ourselves to living a life of faith in Christ, seeking to know Him in a personal and real way, rather than seeking to please Him through the practice of religious rules and regulations.

We do not have to come to Him through self-effort, but instead by accepting Jesus and the work He has done for us.

This indeed is good news for those who are being strangled and burdened by religious laws.

Allow the Holy Spirit to ease our compulsions to please God and therefore earn our salvation. Let us claim our rightful place, not as slaves to dead works, but children set free by Christ’s work at Calvary.

Live free. Live loved. Live as God’s beloved child.
