Freedom Is What We Are All About!
Freedom… That is what a life in Christ is all about. Not the freedom to live in the bondage of sin, rather, to live free in the life changing power of Jesus Christ. So what is freedom in Christ? Paul tells us in the book of Romans that it doesn’t mean we are free to sin more, but that we are dead to sin. (Rom 6:1-2) Christ has set us free from the yoke of slavery and the bondage of sin. Freedom from addiction. Freedom from depression and anxiety. Freedom from anger and hostility.
Jesus Christ can set us free to live daily in the hope, power,
and joy we were created to experience.
Christian freedom is rooted in the truth of who Jesus is and what He has done for us. John 8:31-32 tells us that if we continue to abide in His Word we will know the truth and the truth will set us free. True freedom isn’t about what country you live in or what activities you participate in. True freedom comes from knowing the truth about our sin and believing that Jesus paid the ransom for that sin on the cross. When we daily abide in Christ we are free to experience real change in our life.
The Jewish leaders said to Jesus, “We are the descendants of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone.” Oh how we forget our past. They must have forgotten about their time in Egypt when they were slaves to Pharaoh. Or when they were slaves to the Babylonians, or the Greeks, or currently the Romans. They had been enslaved for hundreds of years, but Jesus was trying to point out something that wasn’t related to their physical slavery and bondage. He was talking about their slavery to sin and legalism. John 8:34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.
The freedom we receive is not a freedom from human bondage, it is freedom from the power and dominion of Sin. Daily in Christ Ministries is all about helping believers In Jesus Christ strengthen their walk and become free from their bondage. Sin has a grip on all of us and walking daily in Christ requires us to take up our cross and follow Him.
We hope you find the resources and encouragement you need here to help you in your daily walk with Jesus Christ
