Weekly blessing from Galatians 5:1,
"May you know that is for freedom that Christ has set you free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."
The work of Jesus Christ on the cross liberates his people to enjoy the freedom of the gospel. Not only does the cross provide forgiveness of sin but also freedom from sin.
Church: Stand in freedom!
The liberating work of Christ means we must reject any other offer that promises freedom. Alcohol promises freedom from problems - but fails to deliver. The latest fitness craze promises freedom from aging - but fails to deliver. There are countless other false offer of freedom.
Church: Stand firm and do not let yourselves be burdened!
Jesus Christ offers freedom and delivers every time.
In Christ alone,
Pastor Jeff Gravens
