The freedom we enjoy because we are Americans is paid for by the blood of those who gave their lives in service to the country. Our debt to those who wear the uniform today is beyond our ability to calculate.
Likewise, the freedom we have in the spiritual realm is paid for by the blood of Jesus on the cross. That is another debt we cannot calculate nor repay. The big difference is that the freedom Jesus brings is eternal.
"1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you] free from the law of sin and death."
Just as you pledge your allegiance to our country because of the freedom it affords, do you pledge your allegiance to the one who has secured your spiritual freedom?
In spite of our sins, our blunders, our mistakes...those who are in Jesus experience the status of "no condemnation." Think of what that means to you.
God's love for us is shown in the giving of his son. Because of this gift, we do not live any longer under the law of sin and death. Tell someone today about your new life in the Spirit.
