1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. source
A quick thought this morning before the morning passes.
What Liberty is verse one speaking of?
What Liberty in The Anointed One have we been given?
The Liberty to NOT practice sin.
Isn’t that supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 🙂
I really can’t come up with a word as to how good this is for us.
Think of it! We have the LIBERTY in CHRIST JESUS to NOT practice sin!
We have the LIBERTY to identify it, name it, call it what it is, and REFUSE to practice it!
Have you gotten any better news than that since Holy Spirit told you, you did not have to go to hell?
However, that is not all the verse says.
It says if we choose to refuse this Liberty and practice sin anyway, it will yoke us, that is the practice of this sin, whatever it is that we chose over Liberty, will tie us up, put us in bondage to the sin we chose.
Bondage – The opposite of Liberty.
Who wants that?!!
