I have been thinking a lot lately about what it means to have freedom in Christ and what it means to truly live in that freedom. I know that I am free in God through the blood of Jesus and that, through Him, I am no longer held captive to sin. Even though I know this, it is hard most days to actually live in that freedom. It is like God has taken my chains off, but I am still living in the prison cell and thinking of myself as a criminal and a prisoner. As much as I remind myself that I am free in Him, I don’t think I really know what that means so I am not able to really experience and understand my freedom. Over the next few days, weeks, and months, I plan to look at what the Bible says about freedom so that I can better understand it and then better live in it. I am hoping that I will learn how to truly live freely in my freedom!
I decided the best place to start would be at the very beginning.
