Christ Has Set Us Free

Because the freedom given to us has come at high price—the death of God’s Only-Begotten Son—then we should not dismiss such freedom by submitting again to the slavery of law, sin and shame. Those who would force us back toward such slavery should, if they like “circumcision” so much, go emasculate themselves. But just as our freedom should not be forfeited for legalism, it is also no license to sin! The freedom purchased for us by Jesus Christ must always have as a goal what edifies and honors.
