For Freedom


"So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point:
You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ.
And now you are united with the One who was raised from the dead."
(Romans 7:4a)

"The ultimate question is not who you are, but whose you are."

"I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin." 
(John 8:34)

"Most of the time we are free to do what we want.
But we are not free to want what we ought.
For that we need a new power based on a divine purchase."
(from Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die by John Piper)

"You are not your own, for you were bought with a price."
(from I Cor. 6:19-20)

Thanking God today for freedom ~ from the power of sin. A gift purchased for me with a great price.
