Word for the day by Christian Education Forum

Redeeming Christ


Varughese Mathew
 Bethel MTC, Philadelphia

Freedom is what we have, Christ has set us free stand then as free people, and do not allow yourself to become slaves again.


     This portion talks about preserving our freedom. Christ sought freedom for all people in this world. He has given His life on the cross for the freedom and salvation of people. As Christ has given the freedom, we should not allow anyone to take away our freedom and become slaves again. So the Lord is talking to us about keeping our freedom.

      The author of this book, apostle Paul tells us that if you  allow yourself to be circumcised, it means that Christ is of no use to you at all. Those who are circumcised are obliged to obey the whole law vs2-4. For when we are in union with Jesus Christ neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all, what matters is faith that works through love. The freedom that is given to us should not be used only for your physical desires, but it should be used to love and serve one another.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank You for giving us the freedom to live in this world and help us to preserve the freedom that You have given us. In Jesus name.Amen

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Christ is  our redeemer and He has given us the freedom in this world and we are supposed to safeguard it.
