Live Free

Posted on: 7-15-112017

“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.” Dwight D. Eisenhower

I came across this quote today andalthough it is speaking more about the freedom we have in our country, it reminded me that our freedom in Christ must also be something we focus on daily. As Christians, we are free in Christ. He has already done all of the work, so we don’t need to “earn” it, but we do need to remind ourselves daily that we are free in Him. We need to actively live in that freedom. If we don’t keep that freedom at the forefront of our mind, we will find ourselves slipping right back into the chains that Christ died to break. There is nothing the enemy loves more than to see you live the life that Jesus died to save you from. He knows that if you are chained to anything at all, you are not free to live for Christ to your fullest. He knows that you living for Christ to the fullest is the most powerful you that you can be…the you he cannot defeat, the you he cannot destroy, and the you who he has no hold on. This you is the person who makes him shake in his boots, and he wants no part of it. He will do anything to stop you from loving free! And if he can take your focus off of that freedom for just a split second, he can get his chains wrapped around you and bondage begins. If you are in Christ, you are free! Do not let Satan have one more moment of your life…the life Christ died to give you!

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