FREE IN CHRIST
Gal.3.28-29- There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. – And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.Gal.3.28-29
This is true independence yet a Dependence on the saving Grace of Jesus. The angels that appeared to the shepherds said unto them “…peace and goodwill toward men”.
The greatest news for all men is what Christ wrought in his death, Burial and Resurrection. He redeemed us from the curse of the law, the dominion of sin, sickness and poverty and this is available to ALL men. Glory to God.
Our opening scripture reveals to us that in Christ, we are one. We are no longer separated by castes, classes, races, tribes, or gender as soon as we come into Christ. A nation though may be under “colonisation/oppression” but when they receive the gospel, they are made free in Christ. Glory to God!
You know even the disciples thought that’s what the coming of Christ was for- to redeem the Israel nation from the rule of the Roman Empire- Acts 1:6, But the coming of Jesus meant more than the independence of a nation; it was for the Salvation of the whole World!
Rev.5.9 – And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Oh Glory to God! Do you see the grand plan of God? That all men, whether bond or free from every tongue, people and Nation can receive this gospel and be translated from the power of darkness to the kingdom of his dear Son. This is what we must go about telling every man, that the price for their freedom has been paid, they no longer need to be colonised by the devil or be under his rule- in Christ, They are made Free!
Let’s take this Gospel to the ends of the earth, to every nation proclaiming Peace and Goodwill to all men.
Declaration: Thank you, Lord, for translating me into your Kingdom, For setting me free from the influence of the Power of darkness, I partner with you to reach my world, my nation with your Gospel, setting men free. Glory to God
