“God’s Kingdom Is A Kingdom of Freedom”

The Apostle Paul’s Epistle to the Romans is a great letter about freedom. In the first five chapters, it talks of our freedom from the wrath of God. Then in chapter six, it talks about our freedom from the dominion of sin. In the seventh chapter, it is saying we are free from law as a covenant. It is no longer a method to be used to gain “brownie points” with God and to assure us of our righteousness. Then, in the following chapter, Paul says we are free from death.

Read the last verses of each of these chapters and we find in each case that the freedom is “through Jesus Christ our Lord”.

The chief cause of unhappiness is not from outside but from inside, from unsatisfied desires and passions. The only free person in the world is one who wants to do what he or she ought to do.

When we really come to believe that God loves us, and that he loved us enough to die for us in Christ, then everything changes. With that glorious faith, the Holy Spirit comes into our lives and he writes the law of love in our hearts so that now we want to do what we ought to do. With Christ there is perfect satisfaction and overwhelming joy.

Think about this: “When we really come to believe that God loves us, …everything changes.” We tend to blame others (true, they are not guiltless), but the Bible challenges us to look inside for the root causes of our unhappiness. Could this revelation bring freedom to you?

“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬
