We have freedom in Christ Jesus. He has completely set us free from the clutches of sin. We no longer need to live under the old yoke and bondage of sin. Jesus has lifted that from us and set us free. We need to stand firm though, in this freedom. We shouldn’t look around at the world and become ensnared again to the same choke holds of sin that once enslaved us. We need to stand firm and keep on standing firm.
But our freedom in Christ does not mean we are free to “live as we please”. We need to live according to the “Spirit” that leads us and guides us. We need to live clothed in the righteousness that can only come from the mercy and grace that Jesus gives to us. We need to realize that this is true freedom; it’s not living to the ways of the flesh and pleasing our earthly desires. That only leads us back into bondage. Today we need to claim the freedom we have in Christ and stand firm in it. Standing firm in the freedom of Christ brings wholeness and liberty to our lives. Remember it’s called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep fighting!
