Seven Freedoms in Christ

In every period of the human era, our Father Heavenly has taught us through good men whom he has chosen as prophets, who in turn have taught us that all we are free to choose between right and wrong and act according to our will, thus giving us agency which is the power to decide. We have the opportunity to choose freedom and eternal life by following our Savior Jesus Christ; we can also choose captivity and death by following the being of all perdition, that is, Satan.

Our decisions determine our destiny and therefore one of the many purposes of our mortal life is to know where we want to go and where we want to be by demonstrating what kind of decisions we will make.

We feel happier when we make the right decisions for ourselves than when we are forced to do so.

Before being in this world we lived with God, in the pre-earthly life, God gave us the agency to decide from the beginning and it was one of the main reasons for the problem between those who followed Christ and those who went after Satan.

In life deciding is the test and for that reason we come to this world to prove who we follow.

The only way to demonstrate our love is with sincere acts, for this it is necessary to have the opportunity to decide, God has granted us that privilege and thus demonstrate our love and gratitude to him with good decisions that demonstrate our fidelity without being forced to do so.

The true freedom is in knowing how to decide, when we decide what is right we can truly say that we are free, we feel true joy and we receive the benefits of the right decisions. blessings of God.

Freedom is therefore a basic human desire. Whereas the Bible often speaks of freedom, its focus is most often related to the spiritual freedom that a person can experience in Christ.

Seven freedoms in Christ 1

First

The freedom in Christ is seen in contrast to the slavery of the sin.

Romans 6: 20-23 he says:

"When you were slaves of sin, you were free from the dominion of righteousness. What fruit did you reap then? Things that now shame you and lead to death! But now that you have been freed from sin and have put yourselves at God's service, you reap the holiness that leads to eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ. Jesusour Lord."

In other words, sin enslaves people to spiritual death and eternity apart from God. Knowing Christ provides freedom from sin's control and eternal life with him.

Second

Freedom in Christ is seen as the only true form of freedom, because it provides lasting freedom beyond this life.

John 8:36 points out, "So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."

Third

A person who has experienced true freedom in Christ is called to live as his servant.

The apostle Paul was an example of this, since many of his letters began with the presentation of himself as a "servant of Jesus Christ". We are free to serve Christ. This seems a paradox to the unbeliever, yet the freedom found in Christ gives the believer the desire to live for Christ as a servant. This attitude reflects the attitude shown by Jesus himself during his time on earth. (John 13: 1-20, Philippians 2: 5-11, Philippians 2: 5-11)).

Fourth

Those who find freedom in Christ also become His children.

John 1:12 teaches, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name."

Galatians 4 also indicates, we are now children and heirs of the inheritance of eternal life with Christ for eternity.

To summarize, we experience true freedom in Christ by knowing Him, walking in His ways and engaging in the changes He makes in our lives as we focus on service to Him and others. This freedom transcends the human freedoms desired in this world, providing peace in this life and freedom with Christ forever.

Fifth

Our Heavenly Father greatly desires to free us from all our fears and apprehensions, He does not want us to live chained by them. He has placed a divine potential in each of us and expects us to use it for His glory. Just as the psalmist DavidWe can experience God's freedom by seeking his face and presence, experiencing time with him and allowing him to fill us with his Holy Spirit.

Psalm 34:4 teaches us: I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Sixth

Isaiah 53 teaches that : The Savior Jesus Christ bore upon Him all our guilt, our sin and condemnation by dying on the cross . Thank you to his death and resurrection is that we are cleansed from all sin. We just have to accept it! In him we have the opportunity for a new beginning here and the assurance of eternal life.

 Seventh

The sacred scriptures speak of the day of the ira of God. On that day God will judge sin, disobedience and all rebellion against him. In spite of everything, he himself provided the solution for us to be free from his wrath. The Savior Jesus Christ!!! through him we received the sorry of our sins and the favor of God.

That is the destiny God desires for every human being! Jesus already suffered our punishment on the cross, and thanks to him we enjoy salvation and forgiveness.

Colossians 1:13-14 He says to us: For he has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption: forgiveness of sins.
