As I wake up early this morning the stirring in my soul desires more of God’s Word.
As I open the scriptures to Galations, I begin to see the importance of the Gospel that was given for all to receive. In the book of Galations, it has been revealed to us, that we were kept under the law as Apostle Paul states, ” shut up unto faith”.
How exciting to know that we are now, set free, from the law or you might say, made in right standing with God, through this one act of grace given to us by God. Jesus shed His blood that we may be cleansed from our sin, no more bound by the law!
Galations 3:24 – 27 reads, “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified (made right) by faith. But after faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many as have been baptised into Christ have put on Christ”.
Another way to say this is that we are “immersed” into the spiritual body of Christ and then He becomes our spiritual identity. God uses the Spirit to identity with us, as belonging to Him.
The freedom of Christ in us cannot exist by the law. For if it is by grace and if by grace, the law cannot exist. Receiving the grace of God through Christ Jesus means, I am under the freedom of Christ and my desires of the old nature are no more my controlling factor.
I have put on a new nature that of Christ Jesus who liveth in me. The law was made for those who disobeyed but now I am under Christ, a new freedom of obedience and liberty.
When we choose Christ, we the cleansing power of Christ in us brings freedom to our mind, soul, spirit and body. A freedom of life, liberty and happiness.
We as believers are to stand in the freedom of Christ and the truth of the Gospel. The Holy Spirit will bring power, to be a witness and freedom in every born- again believer.
Consecrating ourselves unto God and Christ, is simply, bringing our own will, into the alignment of God’s will, that of walking in the spirit and not in the works of the flesh.
There is a spiritual battle warring against the flesh (carnal lustful nature) and our own spirit in which we cannot do the things we would. “But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law”.
Yes, God through Christ Jesus has given us new desires and a want to live in the freedom, obediece and of grace. Oh, how exciting to know the Saving power of Christ Jesus.
The liberty that comes in knowing Christ Jesus, is refreshing to my body, mind and soul. This freedom I have, I do choose daily, to take up my cross and follow Christ.
In closing, let me say, I thank God and His Son Jesus, for sending us the Holy Spirit, that leads and guides us into all truth, as we walk and continue in His saving grace.
While continuing on the narrow pathway of life in Christ Jesus, we can be assured of His blessings for eternity and a life hereafter with Him.
Be blessed as you continue in the grace of our Heavenly Father and His Son Christ Jesus. Yes, His grace is sufficient.
Getting to know God is as simple as A, B, C. [A]… We all have sinned. A.dmit you are sinner. Admit your sin…[B]… B.elieve in Jesus Christ as the sinless Son of God. Believe and trust in Jesus as your Lord and Savior. [C]…be C.ommitted. You have to make a commitment to Him by faith…for the rest of your life, be committed to living your life for Christ and in Christ Jesus.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
