The New You

Choose to live in freedom instead of sin. When you feel the tug back to your former ways, take a minute and ask the Spirit to guide you away from your former life. God has promised you his freedom just as he delivered Israel from the Egyptians. The greatest miracle of freedom can be seen through the salvation He offers us.  You can be made new, and begin to pursue a life lived in righteousness. Today, spend time in God’s presence allowing his truth and love to mold and shape you into the likeness of the very one who’s saved you.

Romans 6:15-18 So, since we’re out from under the old tyranny, does that mean we can live any old way we want? Since we’re free in freedom of God, can we do anything that comes to mind? Hardly. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom. Offer yourselves to sin, for instance, and it’s your last free act. But offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits. All your lives you’ve let sin tell you what to do. But thank God you’ve started listening to a new master, one whose commands set you free to live openly in his freedom!
