FOR THE WEEK OF September 05, 2022

Believe and Be Set Free

Our minds are powerful. Depending on what we believe, life can either be a painful struggle or a joyful experience. The world sends us jumbled messages, so it’s critical that we filter everything we see and hear through the lens of God’s grace. Believing something that doesn’t line up with His Word puts us in spiritual bondage; having faith in what He says opens our eyes to the truth, and the truth makes us free.

Grace is the truth; it’s something Jesus made available for us without us having to earn it. When religion tells us that we’re sinners because of our actions, God’s truth tells us different. Being born again and being in Christ makes us new creations; old things are permanently passed away. This happened with Paul, who could truthfully say he had wronged no man even though he’d persecuted the church before being born again.

We are spirits possessing souls and living in physical bodies. Our spirits became as perfect as God’s the moment we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior. The new spiritual man inside us is created in righteousness and true holiness; therefore, even when we commit sinful acts, we’re no longer sinners because our old sinful natures are gone. If we have trouble believing this, it’s because we need to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

Being born again makes us children of God by faith in Christ Jesus; the knowledge of this sets us free to be who He created us to be. The identities we have in Christ are solid, permanent, and unchanging because He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. This is true liberation and good news for all who believe.


Lord, knowing our true identities in You frees us and changes our lives. Because of what Your Son did, we are who You say we are, and not who the world says we are. We’re grateful for that. In Jesus’ name, amen.
