You have died with Christ, and he has set you free from the spiritual powers of this world. So why do you keep on following the rules of the world, such as, “Don’t handle! Don’t taste! Don’t touch!”? Such rules are mere human teachings about things that deteriorate as we use them.Colossians 2:20-22
The Freedom of Jesus
To trust in Christ means freedom. There is so much freedom you can find in Christ. He set you free from the burden of sin when He went to the cross. He set you free from the bondage of the world. You are free from the hold sin tries to have on you. You are free from the desires of sin. You are free from death! Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Eternal life is the free gift through Jesus; even though the penalty of sin is death, Eternity is the free gift for the believer.
Live in your freedom instead of your sin, Believer! Do not be tied to this world or anything in it. Instead, bask in His glory and His freedom!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for your freedom. Thank you for freeing me from my sin and shame. Amen.
