It is not my habit to quote the Bible for my “Good Words” quotes, but I was looking for an appropriate quote for this week, Passion week. I came across this verse in my reading of Becoming Myself. I thought This is a perfect quote. What an awesome reminder for this week. Thanks, Paul the Apostle.
There is so much wrapped up in the purpose of Christ when we went to the cross. This death, burial, and resurrection did more than provide the forgiveness of our sins (though that is an amazing feat). He came that He could purchase our freedom from the chains of our sin. We are free–no longer bound to follow the demands of our sin nature. We are free to receive healing and wholeness in our hearts. Free to become the person God intended–as a unique reflection of Him.
As Easter approaches, may this quote ring in your heart and mind. In Christ, you are free. Stand in it.
Note: This quote came from the Bible, but I read it afresh along with chapter 10 of Becoming Myself by Stasi Eldredge.
