It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery...You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love...
Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves...To this, you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps...
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life... Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.
But now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel.
This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven... Through Him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses...
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
Galatians 5:1,13; 1 Peter 2:16,21; Romans 6:22; Colossians 1:21-23; Acts 13:39; Romans 8:1-2

How to do this as a weekly Bible study
Day One: Experience Read the entire devotion. Do any verses stand out to you? If so, write it down and work on memorizing it over the week. I personally love the app “Scripture Typer.”
Day Two: Observe & Read Chain. Look up and chain verses (For example on how to chain verses, see this video).
Day Three: Interpret Read through the chain of verses starting with the first one. What do they say? Do you notice when it says “never” or “always” or “If, but, however, therefore, all…..”
Day Four: Application Do “Your turn” and make a list of people that God has put on your heart when you read this.
Day Five: Testify Who in your life, right now, can you share this with? There is somebody in your life that needs to hear this. Close your eyes. What name came to mind?
