FREEDOM

Freedom in Christ is not a license to do whatever we want. It should never lead to lawlessness or licentiousness.

We are free to do good. We are not free to do evil.
We are free from sin. We are not free to sin.

Because of the work of Christ, we are no longer slaves to sin. Sin is no longer our master – we are free! We are now free to live for Christ, free to love God and others, free to obey, and free to fulfill our purpose because our freedom was purchased by the imperishable blood of Christ Jesus. Now this is good news!

Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. – 1 Peter 2:16
