DAY#22 - A Month of Freedom Quotes:
Sets You Free
We are more than halfway through the month long series focusing on Freedom. I realized that we are on the verge of losing our liberty after only one week of doing these posts. This is a serious subject - I hope that you will pray for discernment and then stand up with strength from God to preserve our freedom.
We will begin with the basics by defining "freedom".
Freedom - the absence of necessity, coercion or constraint in choice or action
- liberation from restraint/slavery from the power of another

Becoming a Christian is life changing. We are "set free" by the gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We are no longer slaves to sin and because of this gift our personality changes. The way of the world stops controlling our thoughts and actions. The Scripture passage today gives a wonderful picture example of what it's like if you continue living the way you did prior to becoming a Christian. It's like you look in the mirror and see your transformation in Christ but then walk away and forget what your new self looks like and continue on in your old habits.
Let's make sure to live a life that matches our new and improved image in Christ.
