"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, the, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." NIV
"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."KJV
All of us desire freedom. We live in a world that ties us down to things that close us in and keep us from enjoying true freedom. Some people make changes in their lives or manipulate the world around them to make themselves more free. It isn't long before they are again entangled again, far from freedom. We cannot free ourselves. It is only the blood of Christ that can truly set us free. But it is up to us to stay in the cleansing power of His blood to stay free, so that we don't get caught up in the bondage of this world again.
Heavenly Father, we thank You so much for the freedom we have through the cross of Jesus Christ. Help us to always stay in Your loving grace so that we don't get caught up in the snares of this world. Show us how to stay free, truly free in You. In Jesus' precious name we pray, Amen.
