— Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Grace and freedom are not a license to sin (Jude 4). In fact, sin enslaves us; sin is addictive (John 8:34). As those who have died and buried the old person of sin with Jesus in baptism, we are not to let sin reign over us or become our master because we have been liberated by grace (Rom. 6:1-14). So let’s seek the power of the Holy Spirit to cleanse us (Heb. 9:14) and powerfully liberate us from sin (Rom. 8:10-15). Let’s use our freedom to bless and build others up. Let’s use our freedom to offer our hearts and lives to the work of God!
Holy and Righteous God, my Abba Father, thank you for freeing me from the guilt and power of sin! Please empower and transform me by your Spirit so that I can leave my sinful past behind and live a life of character and blessing in my family, in my work, and in your world. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
