Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/03/16

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

Jesus risen“…through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”    (Romans 8:2)

Freedom is a great blessing and independence is valued, but true freedom comes not from the world of man but from Christ, for He came to set the captives free. Those who are still bound by sin are not free, and those who are subject to death that comes from sin are not free, but if we are free in Christ, free from the law of sin and death, we have the Spirit of Life and we are truly free. It is a great mystery that the more dependence we have on Christ the more free we are; the more we bind ourselves to Him the freer we will be, but it is the law of the Holy Spirit, the law of God, and we are His, made free by His sacrifice. Thank God.

May gratitude flow from the freedom you have in Christ Jesus.
