Stand Firm In Your Freedom

 

Adam took away our choice, but Jesus won it back. It is for freedom that Christ has set you free so stand firm and let no one deprive you of your God-given freedom to choose. “So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law” (Galatians 5:1 NLT). We are not under law but grace. The problem many people have is slipping back under the law. That’s why we must stand strong and firm under grace and not let those who believe we are saved by grace but kept by the law pull us away.

Paul is very clear on this point. That was happening to the Galatians and Paul was warning them about it. It’s so easy to fall back into that trap because we think we must do something. We can do good deeds, but not self-righteous acts of law. We think the Ten Commandments should be in schools, but that is not New Covenant. That is Galatianism—slipping back under the law.

Christ set us free. Why would we want to try to undo His work—His finished work. It was for freedom He set us free. Don’t unfree yourself.
