Walking in Freedom
Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. II Corinthians 3:17
Jesus gave up His freedom in heaven to come to earth to die so that we might be free. Are you walking in the freedom that Jesus won for you? Are you walking in freedom from worry, stress, anxiety and distress?
In place of worry Jesus gave us peace –” Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
In place of bitterness Jesus gave us joy –” I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:11
In place of anxiety Jesus gave us contentment – …” The fear of the Lord leads to life; Then one rests content untouched by trouble.” Proverb 19:23
In place of fear Jesus gave us self-control – “For God did not give us a spirit of fear (timidity), but a spirit of power, love and self-discipline (a sound, well balanced calm mind.) II Timothy 1:7 (Amplified version)
In place of past failures, disappointments and heartaches Jesus gave us a new beginning – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come!” II Corinthians 5:17
The list of freedoms that Jesus secured for us goes on and on. It is our right to walk in the freedom that was won for us by Christ Jesus. Why not start living free today?
“Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
