The beginning of freedom is the acceptance of Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is in conformity with Jesus’ primary assignment on earth ‘to save and set free those ones who put their trust in Him.’
God raised Him up as a mighty and valiant Man for our salvation. Anyone He sets free, will completely be free “that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” Matt. 9:6
There is no one else under heaven by whom we may be saved other than Christ Jesus. He is the only One who is well qualified, positioned and willing to be the Savior of the world. He is holy, innocent and faultless, and not like us who were conceived, born and lived in sin. The blood of His sacrifice was pure, flawless and found worthy before God which He offered once for all which also is the blood of our ransom from condemnation and death. He saves everyone who comes to God through Him.
We were bought with a price out of captivity to live in freedom. The price of our release is the precious blood of Christ. Therefore no one having been bought lives for himself. We have an obligation to live for Him who died for us. This will also ensure that we continue to live a free life rather than become slaves again to sin and entangle ourselves in the bondage of the devil.(1 Cor. 7:22,23)
Having been rescued from the hand of our foes, let us draw closer to God, to live in His presence all the days of our lives. To serve Him fearlessly in holiness and righteousness. In Him is a life that is as a glowing light for all men to see.
