"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1, ESV)
Free from the law. Free from trying to earn God's favor. Free from chasing an impossible standard. Free from the guilt of failure.
I know no good thing is in me. And yet I can still boldly approach the throne of God, for by His grace I am free. I am free -- not to follow after my own selfish pursuits -- but I am free to live a life that pleases God. It will be imperfect, for I am imperfect, but my God regards me through the lens of Christ's perfection.
I am free to live life abundantly, to experience as close as I can this side of eternity fellowship with God.
"Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Gracious Spirit from above,
Thou hast taught me it is so!
Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine."
- I Am His, and He Is Mine
