We Have Been Set Free. Galatians 5:1 // It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.(NIV)Know that you are no longer a slave to your sins. We are set free because of God’s grace and Jesus’s blood. Why should we dwell on the sins of our former selves? Focus on becoming more and more like Christ and realize that you are no longer imprisoned to sin but instead, you have been welcomed into love with open arms.
