Galatians 5:1 (NASB)

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; 
therefore keep standing firm and do not be 
subject again to a yoke of slavery.


Unlocking the Truth - Freedom in Christ

Many of them failed the faith test miserably, falling into idolatry and sinful lusts, and it cost them dearly. After all the miracles God did through Moses to deliver them from bondage, they stubbornly turned their backs on Him, refusing to trust Him.

John8:36 If the Son makes you free you shall be free indeed.

In the second part of Galatians 5:1, Paul is urging us not to do as Israel did, but to anchor ourselves in the freedom of Christ and to live our lives free from the temptation of sin, self-doubts and guilt.

Once we are saved, Satan’s plan for our lives then becomes to damage our testimony. He will bring to memory our former sins and self-doubting beliefs. 


He will lie and tell us that we are not worthy of Jesus’s sacrifice, that our sin is too great, or that we can’t really be saved because we keep tripping up on the same sins.

We must reject these lies, clinging to the cross and remembering that Jesus died for us ALL and that we are ALL worthy of Christ’s sacrifice. John 3:16 (KJV) says so. 

"For God so loved the world,  that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

The King James Version of Galatians 5:1 says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

Again, we must anchor ouselves in the liberty of Jesus Christ by standing fast in the truth. We have to ground our thought life in the truth of God's Word. The battle of faith is fought in our minds.

Only in Christ are we free from the bondage of sin and the lies of the devil. Study the Bible verse of Galatians 5:1 and be set free from the bondage in your life.
