Celebrate ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡ FREEDom ๐Ÿ†“๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพ. Living for CHRISTโœ๏ธbrings true FREEDom.

The law of the SPIRITโœ๏ธ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ who gives life ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿšผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฃ has set you FREE from the law of sin and death โ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ’€โšฐ๏ธ.โ€”Romans 8:2

After being kidnapped, held hostage for thirteen days, and released, New Zealand news cameraman Olaf Wiig, with a broad smile on his face, announced, โ€œI feel more alive now than I have in my entire life.โ€

For reasons difficult to understand, being FREED is more exhilarating than being FREE.

For those who enjoy freedom every day, Olafโ€™s joy was a good reminder of how easily we forget how blessed we are. This is also true spiritually. Those of us who have been CHRISTโœ๏ธians for a long time often forget what itโ€™s like to be held hostage by sin. We can become complacent and even ungrateful. But then GOD sends a reminder in the form of a new believer who gives an exuberant testimony of what GOD has done in his or her life, and once again we see the joy that is ours when we are โ€œfree from the law of sin and deathโ€ (Rom. 8:2).

If freedom has become boring to you, or if you tend to focus on what you canโ€™t do, consider this: Not only are you no longer a slave to sin, but you are freed to be holy and to enjoy eternal life with CHRIST JESUS! (6:22).

Celebrate your freedom in CHRIST by taking the time to thank GOD for the things you are able and free to do as His servant. โ€”Julie Ackerman Link

Living for CHRISTโœ๏ธbrings true freedom.

INSIGHT: Some of the spiritual giants of the church were profoundly changed by Paulโ€™s Spirit-inspired words in Romans. One of those was Martin Luther (1483-1546), a German theologian, writer, and reformer of the church. As a monk, Luther struggled with the impossible task of trying to be righteous on his own merits or works. The words of Romans 1:17, โ€œThe righteous will live by faith,โ€ led Luther to realize that justification (being made holy) is through faith by GODโ€™S grace alone. GODโœ๏ธthrough Hisโœ๏ธ Wordโœ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ƒ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“œโœ๏ธ lifts the burden of sin and sets us free. Who can you share the freeing words of Romans with today? Alyson Kieda
