The Gospel Sets Us Free

In Galatians Paul describes the effect of the Gospel in terms of our freedom.  “For freedom Christ has set you free.”  But what are we free from?

Here are a few freedoms the Gospel makes possible for those who believe in Jesus:

I am free from failure for “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Phil. 4:13)

I am free from want for “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:19)

I am free from fear for “God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”  (II Tim. 1:7)

I am free from the power of Satan, “Because great is He that is ion you, than he that is in the world.” (I Jn. 4:4)

I am free from defeat, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in Triumph ion Christ.”  (II Cor. 2:14)

I am free from sin for “The blood of Jesus Christ purifies us from all sin.”  (I Jn. 1:7)

I am free from worry for “I cast my cares upon Him, for He cares for me.” (I Pet. 5:7)

I am free from bondage for “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”  (II Cor. 3:17)

I am free from condemnation for “There is therefore no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus.”  (Rom. 8:1)
