I've Been Set Free

Galatians 5:1
English Standard Version (ESV)
Christ Has Set Us Free

5 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Matthew 11:30
English Standard Version (ESV)
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Romans 8:2
New International Version (NIV)
2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death.
I don't always know why it is, but all it takes is one image to give me the desire to upload a song around it.  This one of the smiling boy sitting under the print of Jesus with a child was the inspiration for my newest upload.  It is good to know from an early age that Christ has set one free, even if we don't quite know from what we have been freed.  A life , however, that continues to live without that understanding lives with shackles of their own making.  Worry, fear, bitterness or simply sins that we'd rather keep than let go keep us from enjoying our freedom in Christ and from living a courageous life.  Be of good courage.  Our God who has set us free has also promised His presence.  Wherever we are He is also there.  We have been set free.
