Just a Thought for December 17December 17, 2015
What is the glorious liberty of the children of God that Paul mentions in Romans 8:21? “…delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
The bondage of corruption as He shares earlier in chapter 8 refers to being under the law which he calls the law of sin and death (vs. 2) which has no saving power, only a finger that points to condemn and demand you do better.
What the law could not fulfill, Christ did on your behalf. If you are in Christ, you are not under the spirit of bondage (law and fear), but under and included in the spirit of adoption as a joint heir with Christ.
The glorious liberty of the children of God (you’re NOW status) frees you. It doesn’t condemn you. You’re accepted just as you are and dearly loved. As Joseph Prince says, ‘His heart of love is not satisfied with just removing your sins. No, He wants more.’ Walk in this glorious liberty and experience more of God’s blessing than you ever thought possible.
