Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
What does it mean to be set free? To be set free implies that something outside of you or your control has come and freed you, as when a prisoner is set free by his captors. Jesus came to us to set us free. Because of His love, we can be free of guilt, sin, and shame that the enemy uses against us. When we are set free, we are the ones who let go of everything. We release all the old things, and God makes us new.
Father, I pray that we are steadfast in our daily lives. Help us to constantly stay in the Word and abide in You. Because of what You did for me, I am free of all guilt, shame, sin, and death. In You I have life. I know the truth, and I choose to be set free.
