On July 5th, we all head back to work after having a nice holiday. While the pressures and stresses of work and our daily lives may resume today, we still hold onto the same freedoms we celebrated yesterday. Not only do we have the freedom to live as we please in the US, we also have the freedom to live in Christ. We are all set free in Christ, and no work, life event, or outside stressor can capture us and hold us hostage. In Galatians, it says, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Today, though we resume work and life today, focus on your relationship with Christ so that the stressors of life cannot bind you again.
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1 ESV
