GROWING IN CHRIST

"Freed to Serve"

Date published: 11/29/2009

Luke 1:74-75 “To rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.” (NIV)

   When you come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are delivered from your enemies. You are no longer under judgment by God; your place as a child of God is secured in heaven; the decay of your human body is replaced with life immortal; and the outcomes of this world are absorbed into God’s purpose for you. Psalm 119:20 “My soul is consumed with longing for Your laws at all times.” The things of this physical world that consume your everyday life are now seen and experienced within God’s eternal perspective and the living out of His purpose in you. Matthew 6:20-21 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Those things that create fear, anxiety, and hopelessness have been replaced with a new spirit and heart that are not only made alive, but also empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit in you! Claim your place of freedom and walk in the freshness and love of God’s grace each day. Allow God to take those things that plague your identity in Christ and to make them a living testimony to the living Christ in you. Live without fear by trusting Him for everything – knowing that you are secure in Christ!

Philippians 1:20-21 “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” (NIV)
