Galatians Ch 5 verse 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.
We were reminded in the June 28th sermon that we are dead to sin and alive to God. This verse reminds us of that again. Christ has set us free. We are no longer a slave to sin. It is no longer our master. Things of this world are to be enjoyed if they are good but we are no longer always striving after them. Yes, we do still sin and put ourselves first before others and God but this is not a dominant theme in our lives. Jesus is our new King. He has set us free to live for Him. Praise the Lord!
We praise you Jesus that by your death and resurrection you have set us free. Help us to live for you by the power of the Holy Spirit.
