Freedom in Christ

 

“When I mull over freedom, I often find myself forgetting that I was ever enslaved. Enslaved to my sinful flesh, my insatiable desires rooted in this world, and to the Mosaic law I would never be able to uphold as hard as I might try. When I forget what I’ve been set free from, I find myself submitting again to that yoke of slavery. I forget the truth of Romans 8:15:

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ “

Today I’m sharing a celebration of the freedom we, as children of God have in Christ over at Of Larks, come join us as we continue the conversation!

Happy weekend to you, sweet friends!
