God’s Goal: Your Freedom (May 14, 2013)

“Freedom in one area means servanthood in the other.  If you want to serve Christ, you must choose freedom from the world.” {p. 54 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

Freedom in Christ does not mean we are free to do whatever we desire if it involves sin.  When we are servants of Christ, we leave the ways of the world behind.  We are free to experience life the way God intended.  You can’t live in sin and conformity with the world and be an effective witness for Christ.

“Only in freedom can we make correct spiritual decisions.”  {p. 56 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

Freedom in Christ allows us to focus our attention on God, on His Word, on prayer and on His voice.  God’s freedom is not measured by earthly standards but by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

[Read Mark 14-16]

Mark 16:20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by miraculous signs.

Father God,
Jesus is the truth and is the One who sets me free.  I ask that Jesus continue to work in me, producing the freedom You desire.  Make me fruitful and faithful like Jesus Your Son.  Amen.
