21 So what fruit was produced[a] then from the things you are now ashamed of? The outcome of those things is death. 22 But now, since you have been set free from sin and have become enslaved to God, you have your fruit, which results in sanctification—and the outcome is eternal life! (Romans 6:21-22 CSB)
Feeling free is great!
I know when I get to break away on the bike for a few days and sense the freedom of the open road or a quiet trail somewhere there is nothing more liberating.
We live our lives sequestered. We have jobs to do, families, things we must keep up and maintain. And during the holiday season that can all feel very heavy. We can feel burdened and not have a sense of freedom at all.
Yet, Christ came to give us a life free of sin and the ability to live with the freedom that comes from this knowledge. So no matter how heavy life might feel, we can look up and remember to feel that sense of freedom.
