Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/01/12

This week’s scripture is from Galatians:

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”    (Gal. 5:1)

We are meant to be free in Christ. The world and sin seek to entangle us, but in Christ we are free of the curse of sin and death. If we walk in repentance, if we walk in His grace, if we walk in the Holy Spirit, without compromise, then we will walk in freedom, and that freedom sets us free to serve others, to minister as He gives us liberty in the leading of His Holy Spirit. Christ sets captives free; hold fast to Him and lean not on the things of this world, for this is not our home. Take His yoke upon you; be yoked to Christ and Christ alone. Stand fast, stand firm, stand in Christ.

May the Lord bless you to remain free in Christ and in the liberty of the Holy Spirit.
