“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
In New York Harbor on Liberty Island stands our nation’s iconic symbol of the freedom that America has to offer, the Statue of Liberty. She is often referred to as Lady Liberty, holding tall a torch with broken chains at her feet. As immigrants came over from foreign lands seeking freedom, she was a welcoming sight.
If you have ever visited New York City and caught a glimpse of her radiance, she beams with patriotism; especially from Liberty Island beneath her as she towers above thousands of tourists each day.
As much as she stands as a symbol of the freedom we have in our country, she is also a great reminder of the liberty we have in Christ Jesus.
The Apostle Paul knew what the liberty found in Christ can do for a person. When he met Jesus on the road to Damascus, he was set free from the bondage of his sinful life. He went on to preach of that same liberty all across Asia and Europe, and pinned countless examples of that liberty under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit throughout the pages of the Bible.
If you feel like you have a yoke of bondage around you, you can be set free through Christ Jesus.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
God wants to set us free through Jesus Christ in salvation, but He also provides us freedom to serve Him by loving those around us. He has called us into liberty!
“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”
Today seek to yield to the liberty that is found in Lord. Allow Him to guide you. Allow Him to give you boldness to stand and shine your Light for His glory.
II Corinthians 3:17
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
I Samuel 1-2 | Romans 6 | Psalm 92
