Galatians 5:1 (KJV); Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
We have been called into a life of freedom. God expects us as new creatures in Christ to stand fast in this liberty that has been accorded to us.
In 1 Peter 2:9, the Bible says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
You were delivered from darkness. This means that a new covenant believer must invest in understanding the freedom they have in Christ than the bondages of their old fallen nature.
Your responsibility is to stay free.
You stay free by increasing in the knowledge of the finished work of Christ at Calvary.
You stay free by consistently and boldly confessing your identity in Christ.
You stay free by submitting yourself to the right doctrine.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You were delivered from darkness. This means that a new covenant believer must invest in understanding the freedom they have in Christ than the bondages of their old fallen nature.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. Because You made me free, I know that I am free indeed. Never again will I ever be entangled in bondage again. I was ransomed out of the hand of he that was mightier than I. I now live in perpetual liberty, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
