It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 NIV

Your redemptive package which Jesus paid for by His own life at the cross and delivered to you free of charge is a complete one. It includes deliverance from sin, the sinful nature, the consequences of sins, all forms of Satanic oppression, and death. It also involves freedom from the oppressive practices of the godless world system.

However, while the accomplishment of our salvation is exclusively an act of God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ, the sustainability of the liberty purchased for us by Jesus Christ is a mutual responsibility between God and man.

Therefore, to maintain your new righteous position in Christ requires your continuous abiding in Christ: Christ living in you by the Holy Spirit and you responding daily to the guidance and leadership of the Holy Spirit as He instructs and reveals God’s truth to you from His word.

You cannot attain Christlikeness in this world by observing rules and regulations. It will mean fruitless efforts for you to achieve the right standing with God through a legalistic lifestyle of dos and don’ts.

All you need to do to walk daily in dominion is to rely absolutely upon Jesus who now lives in you by His Holy Spirit to guide you through the valleys, the plains, and the various mountaintops in the world.

As long as you remain steadfast in Christ and constantly resist any attempt from anyone to bring you under any legalistic rules no matter how favorable they seem to appear, you are bound to live victoriously in Christ. May the Lord God help you to stand firm in His freedom which He bought for you through the death and resurrection of His dear Son Jesus Christ, may the Lord help you to be alert and obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit as He daily instructs and guides you by His Word in Jesus’ name. Good morning.

Your brother,
