It’s often spoken of in churches: we find freedom in Christ. But what does that really look like?
Some people find religion to be constrictive: rules to follow and expectations to meet. And yes, I supposed religion is. But a relationship with a living God isn’t.
Through salvation, we find freedom from the burden of our sins. Maybe your sins have clung to you for year, weighing you down and making each day more difficult than the one before. By allowing God’s grace in an immersing yourself in the unconditional love of Jesus, there is freedom.
Freedom from sin.
From the “what ifs” and uncertainties in life.
From apprehension and fear of death.
From feeling unloved.
From the expectations.
From all the hurt and pain you carry.
From each and every one of your burdens.
There is freedom in Christ, friends. Freedom to live life fulfilled and chase your incredible God-Sized Dream. <-Click to Tweet!
There is freedom of choice too. This is a dangerous one, friends. Because it’s so easy to slip into the ways of the world again. Each day we have to choose if we are following God, of if we aren’t. Each and every day. We have the freedom to choose to sin. And we have to freedom to resist the many temptations and cling to Jesus.
“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13
Most importantly, we have the freedom to share God’s love.
And when we choose this path, incredible things can happen.
