It is For Freedom
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Galatians 5:1
Freedom is a precious commodity. If you could ask a slave bound to a toilsome life what his freedom is worth, he would say it’s priceless. We too were slaves once, when we lived in darkness far from the liberty that Christ supplies. But it was for freedom that Christ set us free. He freed us because of His great love. Now we can sing praises to the Master. Now we can dance with our feet no longer bound with chains.If you sense in your heart that freedom for you has been elusive, cry out the Eternal God. Ask Him to bring you this gift worth more than gold. You can have the freedom to enter the presence of the King. You can rejoice in His saving grace. Just confess your sins to Him with a heart of repentance and embrace His forgiveness and freedom. Christ purchased your emancipation on the cross. If you turn to Him my friend, you will never be the same.
