" It was for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm therefore, and do not submit yourselves again to the yoke of slavery." 

Galatians 5:1 

Thoughts: 'Paul, when writing to the Galatians, intends to fight something of human nature, which is to fight for something he doesn't have, forgetting what he already has, in this case freedom. Our call was to freedom, contrary to what many think Jesus did not call us to a new slavery regime. He called us to God's freedom. The decision to remain free is in our hands, Christ has set us free and we are the ones who decide to remain free. We can do everything but not everything is convenient.

Prayer: Lord God, thank you for the freedom, which was won by Jesus Christ, purchased at the price of Blood on the cross of Calvary, as it helps this person who is reading this devotional, strengthening them, to stand firm, and who will not put me on yoked to slavery. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
