True Freedom

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1

 

v  Jesus came to set you free. Luke 4:18-19

 

v  We are all in desperate need of true freedom because of the enslavement of sin. John 8:31-36

 

Note: The Apostle Paul proclaimed this freedom to all enslaved   by sin. Acts 13:38-39; 16:29-33

 

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live,

but Christ lives in me. Galatians 2:20a 

v  True freedom is found by trusting in what Christ has done for you. Galatians 2:20a; Galatians 3:13, 26; Romans 5:8; John 3:16

 

The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,

who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20b

 

v  True freedom is found by daily trusting in what Christ will do for you.  Galatians 2:20b

 

Application:

  1. Have you personally trusted in the gracious and loving sacrifice of Christ on the cross for you?
  2. How are you doing in trusting Christ daily to live a life that pleases God?
