VERSE: “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)
EQUATION: JESUS + THE CROSS = LIBERATION
ACTION: We instinctively know, from the Power of the Holy Spirit testifying in and through us, that the same God Who called us onto Himself for salvation and sanctification, will complete and finish what He started. He will do this until the day of Redemption. This fact alone is liberating for the Christian. His salvation freed us from living CAPTIVE to the bondage of sin and its evil by-products of death and destruction. Satan has absolutely, positively NO hold on us! He is defeated because Jesus is more than just the Savior of the World, He is the Great Emancipator! So, let's live as we are supposed to be - free from bondage, free from Satan's hold on us...and free at last, free at last, great God Almighty, Jesus made us FREE at last!
PRAYER: In The Mighty Name of Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of all things, we thank You, oh Great God of Heaven for Your Eternal plan of Redemption, Restoration and Reconciliation. We thank You that You looked down on the sad story state of ALL Mankind and decided to rescue us by Your Son's sacrificial atonement on the Cross which freed us from Satan, the Adamic Nature and ultimately saved us from ourselves!! You saved ME from myself, oh God! There is nothing greater to any of Your disciples and followers than to realize just how liberating the Gospel, the True Truth, the Word of God in each of our lives. Help us to not just completely grasp this but to embed it in our souls that we may not fall short daily, before You. Father, to You be all the Power and Glory and Honor, now and forever more, in Jesus' Strong Name amen.
