You died to set me free
We are continuing to share the scratch recording of our song, You Are My Everything for the daily devotion.
Yesterday we pondered how Jesus suffered and died for us. He took our place so that we might live with Him for all of eternity.
Jesus died in order to free us from the bonds of sin. There is no possible way we could ever free ourselves. From the beginning of humanity, He has orchestrated His plan on how to save us from ourselves.
In order for us to be free from the bonds of sin there had to be a sacrifice. Jesus was that perfect sacrifice and paid the price for our freedom.
Through Jesus we are free indeed!
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2)
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind to set the oppressed free. (Luke 4:18)
Lord, You have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, the debt that we can never repay. Help us to live in such a way that brings glory and honor to Your name. Amen.
