498. Freed from Religion into Something Much Better!

Galatians 5:1 says that it is for freedom that Christ has set us free, and that we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be put back into the bondage of what we’ve been set free from! What is it that we’ve been set free from? We’ve been set free from religion (religious rules and laws that could never provide life). Jesus didn’t come to give us religion or to make us religious. He came to free us from religion, and in doing so God has given us something much better! He’s given us His life. He put Christ in us, as our life.

Rather than being guided by rules and religion, we’re now led, guided and accompanied by the Holy Spirit in us. We were given the Spirit by grace through faith, not by our own works, and we live our daily lives in Christ in the same way – by grace through faith, apart from our own works.
