To try and live as a god, is to live as a slave who does not know that he (she) is a slave.
I am free as a creature, not as a god.
I cannot be free as a creature, until I am reconciled and restored to my Creator - who made me to be free.
Jesus Christ died a slave’s death so that we, who would otherwise live and die as slaves, can live free today and into eternity.
O God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, to be known by You, and to know You, is perfect freedom. Thank You that, despite my slavery and my sin, Your Son came to live and die that I may be free - free to know and be known, free to love and be loved. Please pour the Holy Spirit deep within me, that I may be gripped by the Gospel and grow in hope, as I live free for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
