I’ve been set free by Christ, and now…
Before you can finish the sentence, “I’ve been set free by Christ, and now…” some spiritual hall monitor is going to remind you that “Your liberty in Christ should not lead to license.”
Okay. Got it.
Is there anyone who has been in a church more than a few hours who doesn’t know that our freedom in Christ isn’t freedom to sin?
Is there any way the Holy Spirit isn’t going to convict the holy stuffing out of a believer who is using his or her freedom to excuse their sin?
Come on, man.
Why are we so afraid of our freedom in Christ?
I think I know. We’re afraid of losing control.
But I thought that was what the Christian life was all about. Losing control of life by handing it over to Jesus.
Freedom doesn’t intimidate Jesus. He loves it.
Stop being so afraid of what “might” happen if you tell people the truth that Christ sets us free that you miss seeing what “could” happen.
Like revival! Personal, local, regional, national, and worldwide.
“For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery.”
–The Apostle Paul, Galatians 5:1
