    Remain Free in Christ

    Were you ever a slave? The Israelites knew what slavery was like. They were slaves in Egypt, but the Lord set them free with some awesome miracles. Can you imagine the rejoicing that went on the day they became free? After 400 years of slavery the taste of freedom must have been sweet! Yet, it wasn’t long before the Israelites were complaining, “If only we had died by the Lord’s hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted.” They even said, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.” How ungrateful! After all God had done to free them from slavery they wanted to go back! We can’t understand how they could say that . . . or can we? Isn’t there a part of us, the old Adam, the old man, the sinner in us that wants to reject the freedom Christ won for us and go back to slavery to sin and follow that cruel slave master, Satan? Brothers and sisters in Christ, Christ made you free. Remain free in Christ! Slavery destroys our freedom and this freedom we have is good.
