“Plant your feet firmly therefore within the freedom that Christ has won for us, and do not let yourselves be caught again in the shackles of slavery.” (Galatians 5: 1, JB Phillips New Testament)
The Christ has revealed a new freedom for each of us. Our release is permanent. We can accept this good news and live like the free men and women that we truly are.
Those shackles are not legitimate, and we can resist the lure of believing that we must succumb to such limitation and degradation. We can plant our feet firmly, legitimately, on the Truth that Jesus came to show us. We can remember that we are children of God, not of matter, fear, malice, anger, shame. We can base this conviction on what Jesus taught and proved, that invincible goodness that is ours innately to know and to live.
Let’s be awake to the world’s attempts to get us to believe we are less than free, less than capable, less than lovely, less than worthy. Let’s accept our liberty from the constraints of complaint, competition, envy, negativity, and be the sons and daughters of God that we are. Then let’s awake others to their true freedom through our love, our awareness, our compassion, our grateful and gracious lives.
