GALATIANS 5:1

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.

TO PONDER

There is a great sense of freedom that comes with learning to drive. On 'L' plates we begin by having someone watch our every move each time we get behind the wheel, then we move on to 'P' plates and we no longer have that constant supervision but we do still have additional conditions and restrictions on our driving behaviour. Then the day finally arrives when we receive our full, unrestricted drivers licence. We can go wherever we want, whenever we want and with whoever we want. Ultimate freedom. Who would ever want to give that up? But we see it time and time again don't we; people who let themselves be limited to walking or cycling because they have abused their freedom and driven dangerously, losing their licence in the process. We have an even greater freedom in Christ than what a drivers licence can give us. Yet we so often put that freedom at risk by living dangerously with sin. We receive freedom only to go looking for something else to bind ourselves to. Take hold of your freedom in Christ and let Him show you how to truly live a life of freedom.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I know that you have made me free through Jesus Christ. Help me to live a life worthy of that freedom today. Amen
