Many Christians Live Behind the Bars of Legalism

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).

Believe


It seems the vast majority of Christians live their lives behind the bars of legalism. No one likes to admit they are in bondage. At one time, all of us were in bondage to sin and under a death sentence. Paul put it this way in Galatians 3:22-23: “But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed”.

Jesus sacrificed Himself to set us free. The verses listed below show the power of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and the priceless gift of freedom He has provided for all who put their faith in Him.

  • For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance – now that He has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant(Hebrews 9:15).
  • But when the time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons (Galatians 4:4,5).

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect(1 Peter 1:18, 19).

Live


Let the truth of the finished work of Christ set you free from spiritual bondage. It is His work that will break you out! Once you experience true spiritual freedom, you will never go back to spiritual bondage and self-effort.

In Him,
