Galatians 5:1- 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. (NIV)
Christ died to set us free from sin. Not a freedom to do whatever we want because that would lead us back to slavery. Back to the slavery of our desires. Christ set us free from those desires. Instead, we can live unselfishly and put on the yoke of Christ which is easy and light. It’s a yoke that allows us to remain in the freedom of Christ and enjoy His love. Christ provided all the freedom that we would ever need by His payment for our sins on the cross. We walk out of that freedom from time to time, but we serve a God that can’t be moved, and He offers that freedom to us every day. His mercies are new every day. Are you experiencing the freedom that comes from Christ or are you a slave to your desires? Our strength leads us to disappointment, but resting in the power of Christ leads to freedom, joy, and eternal life. Life is too short to live in the misery of your mistakes, your disappointments, and your sin. Be set free by living for Christ. He will be your strength, He will be your refuge, He will be your rock, and He is your Savior. Call out to God today! There is freedom waiting for you in all you do, but in all you do, do it for it for the glory of God.
