It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. - Galatians 5:1

You are a free human being, a bond-slave of Christ, because of the chains that Jesus broke when He gave His very dear life for the life you are living right now. Being a slave to Christ means that we subject ourselves to the supremacy of our Lord. He is the God above A L L, and we receive freedom in exchange for living with this acknowledgement and unleashing His glory, goodness, and truth to the world. To be a bond-slave of Christ means to live with an awareness that this life has nothing to do with us except for the role that we were created and called to play in our Maker's story. We are ordained Kingdom advancers. 

We are born into the world with this redemptive, restoring freedom in Christ and an instilled flame that allows us to rise and live in Him. We can find this freedom through feeding on the Word of God and acknowledging His Spirit that is alive and at work in each of us. As Christians, we are called away from things like being a captive of Satan and facing eternal death. We are instead called to true, absolute freedom in Christ, receiving forgiveness of sins through the blood Jesus shed for us. How freeing this truth alone is! The power of this freedom enables us to fully experience freedom from guilt, an awareness of the truth of God, and the hope of eternal life. 

Seek this freedom and you will find it!
