The cost of our freedom // 31-05-17

“For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.” Colossians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Freedom is not something we have to work out or try to earn, it’s a gift from a Father who loves us. And it wasn’t cheap, it cost Him everything. Our freedom was hard fought for and God wants us to receive it, enjoy it and use it for good! Let’s not reject, waste or misuse the freedom we have through Christ. Freedom from what? From spiritual death, from the effects of sin, from the crippling consequences of guilt and shame, from a life without meaning and hope, from a self-serving existence, from hatred and bitterness. You are forgiven! You are free in Jesus’ Name! Let’s live it 🙂
