FREEDOM IN CHRIST            Page 5

EXTRICATE

** What is Christian freedom?

It is deliverance, by Jesus Christ, from keeping the Mosaic Law and the traditions of men for salvation (for by grace you have been saved).

It is the knowledge that we cannot make ourselves more pleasing to God by our good works, but only through faith in Jesus Christ.

It is the privilege of joyfully obeying God out of a heart of gratitude for the wonderful gift of His Son.

DELINEATE

** How does Christian liberty impact our past, present and future joy of living for Jesus Christ?

1) In the past He set us free, by His grace.
2) In the present He helps us stand firm in truth.
3) In the future He prevents us from being subject again to a yoke of slavery.

EVALUATE

** With all of our freedom in Christ, how do we know where to draw the line? How do we set Christ honoring standards for our own life?

1) Do not sin! cf. Romans 5:20-6:2
2) Do not cause a weaker brother to stumble! cf. 1Corinthians 8:1-13
3) Do all to the glory of God! cf. 1Corinthians 10:23-31

ACTIVATE

** Are you truly thankful for the freedom that the death of Jesus Christ provided for you? If so, you will aggressively apply these three principles to your daily life. We ought to be a people who joyfully obey our risen Savior by avoiding obvious sin, not causing our weaker brother to stumble and by doing all to the glory of God! Let's ask Him for the grace to do all three!
