"In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence." Ephesians 3:12
Healing brings freedom.
Healing through Christ brings freedom.
I know this is a classic American thing to post today. Something about freedom. But, freedom in Christ is different.
When I was struggling with all my addictions, those held me back from actually being free. I didn't have healing, I had shame. Shame was the thing that held me back from getting healed. I never thought Christ wanted me because I added scars on my body that were never supposed to be there.
The truth is, Christ wants us. He wants us to come to Him.
He doesn't want us to live with shame. He wants to heal us from our shame and give us freedom.
Freedom in Christ means living in your calling and being true to yourself. It's being exactly who you are. It's being exactly who God created you to be. It's living and not caring what people think because you know what God thinks.
You are so valuable. Go to Him. Let Him take the shame you carry. Live in freedom.
Prayer // Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for the chance of freedom. Thank you for taking my shame away. You died on the cross for me so that I don't have to live in shame, I can live in freedom. I love you, Lord. Amen.
