Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/05/15

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

Jesus Christ risen“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”         (2 Cor. 3:17)

To be truly free we must be free in the Lord, for the Spirit of the Lord is what makes us truly free; therefore we must belong to the Lord and have His Spirit in us. The covenant of the law brought condemnation, but the covenant in Jesus Christ brings freedom from condemnation and allows us to sit not under the law, but to sit in righteousness before the Lord, for by His Spirit we are transformed into His image, and by His Spirit we are given life, and in the next life, life eternal. So do not lose heart or grow weary in the confines of this life, but take on the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of Faith, and be free in the Lord who loves you.

May the Spirit of the Lord bless you with the freedom of His love.
