Set Free!

I'm posting today over at Woman to Woman with a special announcement.  Be sure you stop by. 



Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! 
Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. 

When you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Meanwhile we expectantly wait for a satisfying relationship with the Spirit. For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything.  What matters is something far more interior: 
faith expressed in love.
Galatians 5:1, 4-6

When we attempt to be justified by the law we become estranged from Christ.  This doesn't mean that we have lost our salvation, but rather that we have stopped living by grace and are trying live out the Christian life by keeping the law.   Jesus came to set us free, so live free - walk in His Grace! 


Many blessings,
