Livin Free January 9, 2013 – Posted in: Uncategorized

This week shirt is named “Livin Free”. Based off of John 8:32, “and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”As I was reading the title of this week’s shirt another verse popped in my head. “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin” Romans 6:6

I find that if I don’t continually cover myself with Jesus and His Word that I don’t stay free, and that my old self seems to trickle in. I know my old self is dead, because I have been saved by the blood of Jesus, but to me that doesn’t mean old habits that died with that old body were completely abolished. We live in a broken world and the Devil loves to bring those things back into our lives, to try and bring us down. I can always tell when I’m not doing what I’m supposed to do, and that is, read the Word, pray to my Father at all times and give thanks. I see myself falling away when I don’t stay strong in those.

So to me, in order to continually stay “livin free”, I need to know the truth, which is in the Word and to pray to my Father in Heaven at all times. Living Free takes a lot of work, but definitely worth it!
