Christ Sets Us Free
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.Galatians 5:1
People that don’t know Christ have believed Satan’s lie, that if they serve Christ, they will become a slave. They also believe life will be boring because they have to stop things that are not pleasing to God. These are all lies from Satan, actually when we live for Christ, life is fulfilling, we are free and we enjoy life more than ever; and we know Heaven is our home.
Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1 John 5:4) Christ sets us free from fear that comes from Satan, based on the evil he creates in this world. Christian’s live in victory because Christ is always with us through the indwelling Holy Spirit. We go through life guided by Christ, and there is nothing we cannot overcome with the power of Christ.
The world cannot touch us because life is in our spirit, however if we give into fear from the world, Satan has influenced our spirit. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28) Life is in our spirit, and we are the only one that can let Satan into our soul through the flesh. The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life. (John 6:63) Our life is our soul, the flesh counts for nothing except to live on earth.
Christians don’t live in fear, because we know life in our spirit, and we don’t let Satan control our spirit, only God controls our spirit! We are controlled by God, guided by Christ, and we have nothing to fear. Our major concern is people who don’t Christ, and by default believe Satan’s lies and deceptions.
Today know that you are free in Christ, no matter what your life circumstances may be. Live today for your eternal spirit, no matter what you are doing.
Prayer: Father, take away fear from Satan and guide me to live in victory, knowing you are with me, and Heaven is my home. In Jesus name, Amen
