He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians 1:7-8)
Yesterday, we touched on God’s faithful forgiveness based on Jesus’ blood. The blood of Christ bought more than our forgiveness; it also bought us our freedom.
God is a God of freedom, and His heart is to see every person set free. Wherever Holy Spirit is, there is freedom (2 Cor. 3:17). Galatians 5:1 says, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” God did not create you to be a slave, but He calls you a son or a daughter. As a child of the King, you are free indeed (John 8:36).
There is nothing so sinful or wretched that God cannot or will not free you from. There is no depravity too deep for His reach. The freedom Jesus brings is stronger than every chain or lie. You can walk in freedom. What is it that has been holding you back from total freedom? Bring it to Jesus, and let His blood speak the better word. The moment you gave your life to Christ is the moment that you were born into freedom. Satan seeks to keep you bound in lies, claiming that you’ll never be free. Dear one, your freedom has already been purchased. The receipt is in your hands. Go and claim your freedom. You don’t have to live as a slave anymore; you are a free child of God.Like what you've read? Receive free email updates from The Voice Online: Subscribe
