Good Morning Princesses!
Happy 4th of July! As you celebrate with family and friends this holiday, remember that as Christians, we have the ultimate freedom-- freedom in Jesus Christ (Galatians 5:1). We are encased by grace.
Romans 8:1-4 (ESV) - Life in the Spirit
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you freein Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Romans 13:38-39 (NIV)
38 “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.
Here's a quick clip from Beth Moore discussing freedom, And So What?
Closing Thought- (Romans 6:14)
Know that through the Holy Spirit you can:
• do things you couldn't;
• feel things you didn't; and
• know things you wouldn't.
For your praise and worship:
