SONG: This week, I want to encourage you that you are free. Bethel Music’s No Longer Slaves is for those of you who are feeling condemned, afraid, abandoned, or any other emotion that has NO PLACE in the life of one who has trusted Jesus. You are a child of God. You are precious, accepted, blameless, chosen. Those things that nag at you and cause you doubt, shame, fear or anything else are gone. They were nailed to the cross. They were left behind in the tomb when the stone was rolled away and Christ walked out. You are a new creation. Do you know who you are? You are a child of God. If you haven’t yet accepted Jesus, simply confessing your need for him and your belief in His work on your behalf brings you into the family of God. Choose freedom and victory today.
SCRIPTURE: Galatians 4:7 is an outrageously lavish statement. It makes no sense that the God of the universe, who is pure, holy and just would accept us in our sinful brokenness. There’s nothing you can do to earn it. No good deeds, religious rituals or attempts in your own strength can save you. The prayer of salvation to accept this free gift is all that is needed. By choosing a relationship with God, you can be grafted into the family. You don’t have to be a slave to your past, your sin, your pride, your fear, your unbelief any longer.
So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
Galatians 4:7 (NIV)
You are precious, accepted, blameless, chosen.
PRAYER: Lord God, You created the universe but you still see me. You know me and long for me to be close to You. Take my doubt, my fear, my past, my old ways and let me be wholly Yours. You have not simply called me into empty religion, but into a vibrant relationship with You. You have made me Your child and I trust You because You are a Good Father. Walk with me daily and show me Your ways that I might grasp just how deep Your love is for me. AMEN.
