Monday: The Nature of Christian Freedom — 5 Comments

  1. we owe our liberty to christ finish work. Our freedom is the position with christ. The gospel of grace gives christians the freedom.
    This does not give us the liberty to unethical.
    Students in the Tetiary institutions have freedom but that does not give them the liberty to violate school regulations. He that abide by the rules by first knowing them is said to be decipline.
    The nature of christian freedom is with our relationship with christ
    Outside of Jesus christ, human existence is characterized as bondage

  2. The Nature of Christian Freedom

    *** True, Christ gives us the freedom but not the freedom to abuse His grace.

    When He says, “… for my yoke is easy and my burden is light…” He means that though we are His children, He still longs to have us serve Him. And believe me, it is much soothing to serve God because even as His servants, He does not impose burdens over us. Everything He requires of us is for our own good

    • "For , bretheren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh..." (Galatians 5:13)

  3. Happy sabbath to everyone.
    If we could sum up our understanding of "freedom", it would be this, "Christ our Righteousness" and the freedom it brings us from guilt and shame.
    Freedom is that Christ has removed our guilt and shame. What I mean by that is for instance when we say, think or do something in a knee jerk reaction in response to something someone said or did to us (all the while we are Christ's servants) and we cursed or thought something unchristlike...in the next split second the Holy Spirit convicts us that our reaction was something bad...you feel bad/shame/guilty. The sin makes us feel separated from the love and flow we have in our relationship with our Lord. We ask ourselves...?why did I say that? When this scenario happens our pride steps in and the separation from the flow and love we have in Christ is clearly discerned....What can be done is to apologize to God before pride takes us to far. Or we can rationalize that our reaction was justifiable. It could take us hours before we feel back in Gods grace. But my experience and understanding of "freedom" is to remember -in that instant-that Jesus DIED for my guilt and shame when I break His law. So I hang my head and say to my Lord..THANK YOU SWEET Savior. I DONT want to be that way. And almost instantly my burden of guilt and shame is gone away. I then receive the strength to make the correction in that case. I have been practicing this on my journey and God is showing me the depth of His love for me and my days have more and more happiness with Him in our love relationship.
    I am so deeply grateful that "freedom" "in Christ" removes the guilt and shame that sinning creates. Yes I am truly free. Yea!!!!!!!!!!
    ps I hope this story helps someone. Also it's the 1888 message in a nutshell. God bless you all! Niece
