3 Truths about Christ’s Freedom that makes our life easier!
1. We are no longer stuck in our sin weakness!
How often do you and I mess up and then struggle to let go of the guilt that comes with it? Maybe your frustration with your kids leads to angry and unkind words. Or you scroll through your FB feed and read a comment by another woman in your church criticizing you about being controlling and manipulative. Firing back with hurtful words is your first response. Being free in Christ gives us room to confess and release that sin and receive FREELY the grace Christ offers. We can be thankful for this freedom since it allows us to grow in Him and learn how to extend it to others.
2. We can cling to hope when times are grim.
Paul talks so much about this in Romans 6. He references being slaves, lawless, dead before Christ. BUT after Christ, his word choice is filled with hope and positive vibes! He says we become FREE, productive, righteous, holy, new, and ALIVE! Our life events can then be filtered through the Spiritual lenses of freedom and purpose.
3. We don’t have to find a way to be free!
As I’ve shared before I’m a planner. When I see a problem, I wrestle with the options of solving it for hours before I conclude what to do. With sin though, there is no solution that our human hearts, minds, and bodies can provide. But because of Christ, we are free from that demand.
“O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God — through Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 7:24-25
Paul poses the problem and the solution…We are delivered through Jesus. There is nothing I can or should do — I am free to release that problem and enjoy being free because Christ made me FREE!
I AM ABSOLUTELY FREE!
