Christian Fellowship Church Of Largo
The liberty of our heart simply soars
With blessings that opens our prison doors!
His Blood has made us pure and free
So stand firmly in your faith for all to see!
Bold, yet humbly walking without guilt or shame
Obeying, serving, and thankful in Jesus’ Name!
What joy arises from the peace we have within
Of sweet freedom from the bondage of sin!
Freedom to live for Him who died for me
To do His will gladly, to be all He wants me to be!
How sweet to walk with Him each day
And trust His leading along life’s highway.
How thankful for His mercy and His grace
O sweet freedom and His love to embrace!
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherein Christ has made us free, and be not entangles again with the yoke of bondage.” Gal.5:1 KJV

“BE FREE INDEED!
“Now the LORD is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is freedom.”
2 Cor. 3:17 NIV
“So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36 NIV
O sweet freedom! When we are free that is something we can really enjoy and celebrate! The summer months include the Fourth of July which is a holiday all across America. While parades and picnics are something many folks enjoy, for some it is considered a day free from working! For the Believer in Christ Jesus, we are thankful, not only because we still live in a land where we can worship the LORD, Christ has given us freedom from the power of a sinful lifestyle!
When we are set free from self-effort and the guilt it produces, we find ourselves walking in the freedom that pleases God! We acknowledge that He is the one who enables us to obey Him, and the work He calls us to with confidence it will be accomplished in a way that pleases Him!
Don’t be deceived by any of Satan’s lies! He attacks our mind and emotions to counter the truth of God’s Word! His purpose is to render us as ineffective as possible in our Christian walk! Many people try to tell us it does not matter what religion we choose to follow, as all roads lead to God! What a lie!! While they are all entitled to their opinion, it does not mean they are correct in their thinking! Popular opinions are often contrary to the Word of God! Many have a zeal for God, but liberal concepts often confuse and deceive many into a false sense of freedom or liberty, only to find out when it is too late, they were wrong!
“But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy and without blemish and free from accusation if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope of the gospel.” Col.1:22-23a NIV
Do not allow anyone to move you away from the freedom we have in Christ! Adding any condition to our salvation other than faith in Christ Jesus alone denies His work on the Cross and says His atonement was not enough to save us! Rituals and laws may be good if they point you to Christ and the way He has set us free, but if they bring you into bondage, you will find yourself in a painful prison! Stand firm! Guard your freedom in Christ!
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourself be burdened again with the yoke of bondage. Gal.5:1 NIV vss. 13-14 “You, my brothers, were called to be free, but do not use your freedom to indulge in sinful nature, rather serve one another in love. The Law is summed up in a single command, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
