Today marks the last day of our “Free People” devotional. It’s been our prayer that in reflecting on the freedom we are called to in Christ that you’ve been encouraged and emboldened.
Freedom isn’t something that we have earned but a gift given to us, and yet we have the decision to embrace freedom - or turn back to what once enslaved us. As we’ve explored, the Exodus provides a helpful narrative of the human condition - free people can easily turn back to oppression if we don’t realise who we truly are. In the Exodus story, we witnessed the Israelites finding freedom not just from slavery but in the revelation of their true identity as God's chosen people. Similarly, our freedom is deeply intertwined with recognising who we are in Christ - beloved, chosen, and redeemed.
But how do we hold onto our identity in Christ, especially in a world that is noisy with other labels and identities?
We keep our eyes on Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith. Our lives are enriched and safeguarded when we prioritise intimacy with Jesus - cultivating a deep, personal connection with our Saviour.
Finally, as we draw closer to Jesus - we become more like Him. Not just freed for our own benefit - but to become agents of God's love, hope and freedom to the world, stepping into our inheritance as co-heirs with Christ, bringing Heaven to earth.
Your identity in Christ is the bedrock of your freedom. Intimacy with Him becomes your shield, guiding your steps in a world filled with challenges. Your inheritance, a gift graciously given, propels you into a mission to share the good news and be a blessing to the world.
