Reflections Along the Jesus Way
August 24, 2023 – Quote for the Day:
“By God’s mercy, we have freedom in Christ, but this freedom is not merely given to us that we might breathe clean, clear spiritual air now that we have been redeemed from the bondage of a religious prison. We are not free merely for ourselves, so that we might luxuriate in the life Jesus lives in us.
It is an incredible, unbelievable blessing to be free in Christ, but it’s not enough to give thanks for what has happened in our lives alone. Jesus is not the new Moses, setting us, as one of many captives, free, merely so that we might be free. There’s more to freedom in Christ than that.
Freedom in Christ is a cause, it’s a dynamic message, it’s a spiritual imperative and a divine revolution. We who know freedom in Christ, we who have come to a deeper and more profound relationship in and with God are charged with sharing the same message.”
