“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”
Because of God’s grace, I am personally freed from living under the flawed mercy of the people around me. Rather, I am under the freedom of Christ’s mercy. Let the wonder of that truth permeate my soul until God’s prominence dwarfs everything and everyone else. God is my God, not people. They are just like me - just as sinful and in need of God’s grace. May I focus on Him and what He has done for me to the point that my desires to obey Him are driven by love, and not duty. Out of freedom. Thank You, Lord, that You have freed us.
