5. What does it mean to be free?


  • Whether we realise it or not, we were all bound spiritually as a consequence of our mistakes. 
    "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23


  • Our sins also gave Satan permission to rule, overpower and curse us (Galatians 5:19-21).

    • Our spiritual understanding was darkened (2 Cor 4:4).

    • Our soul was rejected and wounded.

    • Our bodies are weakened by sickness.

    • Our finances are constantly in lack (Malachi 3:10-12). 

Christ’s work on the cross provided for us to be free. 
"But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”" - Galatians 3:13

  • In Christ, the penalty of our sin is paid for, and the power of sin is broken over our lives.
    "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"
     - 2 Corinthians 5:17

  • As we honor and respond to the Holy Spirit’s guidance to us, we walk out the freedom Christ won for us.
    "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God." - Romans 8:14
