The abundance of “restrictions” presented in the Bible can make it seem as if a Christian life is an unattainable one. Nothing could be further from the truth. Paul, a man who himself struggled immensely against his own desires, explains that to follow Christ is to be set free. The chains of shame, long-standing habits, and addiction stand broken and behind you, and a new road lies before you. Does true freedom entail doing whatever you want, though? Paul wants you to consider what a life freed would look like, for God is a God of freedom, and He intends that you enter those blessings to their fullest degree.
Questions for further thought:
1. What habits do you feel trapped in?
2. What does a life set free look like? Moreover, what would your life set free look like?
Challenge: Dig into Romans 6-8 and search for instances that Paul writes of freedom. How many times does the freedom of Christ come up in just three chapters?
