Friends, this morning, as I was praying about the pressure to publish a daily blog and how it sometimes interferes with the quality of my daily time of prayer and meditation, I asked God: “Do I have the freedom to stop posting?” I think I heard Him say “yes,” but that it is up to me. I felt freedom, and that feeling inspired this blog post. I hope it blesses you.
FREEDOM IN CHRIST
Some ministry and marketplace leaders think there is only one way to follow Christ— their way. Some think there is only one way to do secular work— their way. This black-and-white thinking flies in the face of Christ and the freedom He gives us. If this is you, you are not free. You are bound by your own limited understanding of Christ, and your blinders are preventing you from seeing the bigger picture. To get free from black-and-white, either/or thinking, several steps are required.
Here is my take on seven steps to experience greater “Freedom in Christ.”
These seven steps help to realize the tremendous freedom found in Christ— freedom from legalistic adherence to the law, the power of sin, and the condemnation it brings. It leads us to live a life with Christ of love, service, and faith.
Your aspiring (and free) servant, Daniel M.
