Devotional: True Freedom is Found in Jesus

Today's devotional at Paul's Ponderings:

{Galatians 5:1; NASB} 
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. 

In our hearts many of us long for freedom.  This isn’t about political freedom.  Rather it is about getting out from underneath the oppression of addiction, the unrealistic expectation, and the shame/guilt that plague our lives.  We want to have the freedom to become the people God created us to be.

The Gospel( which is the good news of God’s Kingdom breaking into this world) proclaims a message of freedom. God has a great desire to see His creation free! In Jesus this desire of God was made real. Because of Jesus we can be free!

In the upside down nature of God’s Kingdom we discover that true freedom is not found through being able to do whatever we want to do.  According to Scripture true freedom begins with our choice to become slaves to God.
