Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/04/10

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”     (2 Cor. 3:17)

Freedom is a blessing and a wonderful gift, but as we celebrate our freedom, let us remember who it is that actually makes us free. Our freedom is in the Lord, for freedom is not of man but in Him who came to save us. Jesus said He came to set the captives free, and those He sets free are free indeed, for it is the Spirit of the Lord that frees us from sin and bondage and gives us eternal life. And in that freedom we are transformed into Christ’s likeness, into His glory, free in the Spirit of the Lord. Praise God for He is good.

May the Spirit of the Lord be upon you this very day, and may His glorious freedom be in you.
