Real .. Life .. Now

Are you living free???

This is a hard question.  I sat down to read from Galatians this morning and was not even able to get past the first few verses before the Lord pricked my spirit to delve deeper into them.

Galatians 1:3-5 “Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to Whom be glory forever and ever.  Amen.”

These verses so clearly say that Jesus gave Himself for our sins so we would be delivered (rescued, set free) from the evil in this world we live in.  In other words, Jesus already paid for our sins so we could be living in freedom…TODAY.  Basically if we were to believe what this passage is really saying we would know that He did everything so that we would not be hindered, we would not be overcome, we would not be pulled into the evils of the age we live in.  When our hearts understand this we will know that God never intended for us to be like yoyo’s pulled in and out of the Father’s will and the will of the world.  We have been rescued from this!  Delivered from this!  I love it that these verses say that this was God’s original plan in the first place.  He never intended for us to struggle with the evils of the age we live in.  Through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus, we are set free and can return to walk in the original plan He had for man.

You have been set free!  You are not bound anymore!  Your Father loves you so much that He has rescued you from the evils of the age we live in.  It is time to praise Him!  Tell Him right now how grateful you are that He has delivered you from the pulls that the world has on you.  There are no chains.  They have been severed.  You are free to be free!
