In considering the topic of freedom in Christ, I asked myself, what exactly are we free from? Here are just a few that I came up with:
We are freed from our bondage to sin.
“You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.” Romans 6:18
We are free from being condemned by God for our sins.
“There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1
We are freed from the power of death.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
We are freed from anxiety.
“And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of an anxious mind….your Father knows that you need them.” Luke 12:29
We are freed from loneliness.
“….I am with you always to the close of the age.” Matthew 28:20
We are freed from the judgement of others.
If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
There are probably others. What has God freed you from?
