Daily Devotion: Struggling to Be Free

Bible Reading: Galatians 5:1-7

Key Verse: Verse 1 – “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Key Words: Christ hath made us free

The freedoms we have today are the direct result of the grace of God for us. It reminds me of the following.

One warm summer afternoon, a bird flew through the open door into a chapel where divine service was being conducted. Full of fear it flew backward and forward near the ceiling and against the windows, vainly seeking a way out into the sunshine. In one of the pews sat a lady who observed the bird, thinking how foolish it was not to fly out the open door into liberty. At last the bird’s strength being gone, it rested a moment on one of the rafters. Then, seeing the open door, it flew out into the sunshine, venting its joy in a song. The lady who had been watching the little bird thought to herself: “Am I not acting as foolishly as I thought the bird was? How long have I been struggling under the burden of my sin in the vain endeavor to get free, and all the while the door of God’s grace has been wide open.”

If it wasn’t for the grace of God, we would all be struggling under the bondage of sin.

What to do:
✞ We are free from sin, not free to sin.
