MORE Freedom - Part 3

10.05.17 | Devotions | by Tim Dowdy

    Freedom is precious. 

    It is often hard-won by those who are willing to fight for it. And sadly it is often under-appreciated by those who benefit from the battle waged on their behalf. 

    But if we could truly grasp the cost - and the glorious gift - of our salvation bought by Jesus Christ, I believe we would never again take our freedom for granted. 

    The old saying is certainly true: Freedom is not free.

    Our freedom is paid for by Christ Himself. 

    “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.’”
    (Galatians 3:13 ESV)

    Our freedom is freely offered as a gift from our Heavenly Father. 

    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” 

    (John 3:16 ESV) 

    Our freedom in Christ never fails. 

    Jesus said, 

     

    “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” (John 10:28 ESV)

    But even as we rejoice in our freedom, we must remember…

    We are not our own. We are bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

    Jesus paid that price through His death on the cross, so that we could be reconciled to God and enjoy MORE FREEDOM - both now and in eternity to come. 

    Our freedom in Christ sets us free…forever!
