Living Freely in Your Freedom- Answers Through Adam and Eve

Freedom

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.

I know that you have the power to bring children to the barren,

To raise the dead back to life, and to see into the heart of man.

You have command over all the creatures on earth,

You have authority over all the stars in the sky,
