 “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:22‬ ‭NIV‬‬

My first exposure to the word liberate came when I was in grade school and was directly associated with the women’s lib movement. I had never thought of “liberation” in terms of anyone being set free, but little did I realize this movement mirrored salvation in that it calls people to turn away from an old way of thinking and living. Christ came to set us free from the old, sinful way of doing things. Once we are set free from slavery to sin we are freed to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to all our friends, neighbors and even our enemies. In the process of telling the world about Jesus, we become more and more like Christ, aka “sanctified” or holy.

What are some of the things that have changed in you since you began following Christ? In what ways have you become more like him?🚦
