And now I'm free
And now I see
Today we continue sharing the first song on our latest CD, Before Your Throne. It is the title track entitled, I Stand Before Your Throne.
The freedom we have received through the blood of Jesus is a gift. Our freedom came at a cost. Jesus became the sacrifice needed to pay for our sin. He gave Himself at the altar so that we might live. He made this sacrifice voluntarily; because He loves us, and He paid the price that we could never afford to pay ourselves.
So as believers in Christ, what are we called to do? Because we have been set free from our many sins by His sacrifice on the cross, we are also called to be slaves of God, to put Him first and keep Him first in everything that we do. When we glorify Him in everything that we do, our actions lead us to holiness and a closer relationship with God.
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. (Romans 6:22)
Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. (1 Peter 2:16)
Dear Lord, we thank You for the blood that You shed on the cross so that we can stand in freedom, clear from judgment. Help us to keep You number one in our lives, so that we can grow in holiness and closer relationship with You. We give You all honor and glory and praise. Amen.
