Are We Truly Free?

15 Oct

For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm
and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.  (Gal 5:1)

We are a people who value freedom.

Our country was established upon the tenet of religious freedom.

We fought vigorously to preserve that freedom throughout the years.

Well, if we value freedom so, why is it that we often slip into the slavery of sin?

After all, Jesus not only fought valiantly, He also destroyed the grip of sin and death and restored us to new life.  We no longer need to live as slaves to sin and death.  But, we often do.

If freedom is such a high priority in our lives, let us live our freedom out this day!

FAITH ACTION:  In meditation today, pray for all of those people who allow themselves to be slaves to sin, that they may shrug off the bondage of sin and walk in the light of the Lord.
