Stand fast in the freedom won for us by Christ


For freedom Christ freed us. Stand fast therefore and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1

When we trust in Christ as our Savior, He sets us free from bondage under the law, having fulfilled its righteous demands in our stead and having made full atonement for all our sins. Since we have been pardoned and set free through faith in Christ our Substitute, we don’t turn back and again become entangled in the demands of the law to merit our salvation.

O Christ, You freed us from the law’s curse by being cursed for us. Grant that we hold fast to You and the salvation You won for us in faith and not turn back to our works under the law. Amen.
