“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." ~ Romans 6:14
This is a picture from inside the slave castle in Cape Coast, Ghana. I was in the male slave dungeon. Although the weather outside was beautiful and bright, this room was dark and depressing. This was all the light that came through. We all used to be in slavery. Sin had us bound and there was nothing we could do to get out. But thank God that the Atonement of Jesus Christ has made us free!
Never forget what God has done for you if you are one of His children. You used to be in spiritual slavery with no way of escape. Christ has freed you from that darkness, however, into His glorious light. This is the time of year where too many of us get extremely materialistic. If we’re not careful we can get focused on things and lose focus on God’s grace. Sometimes we may even question the Lord’s goodness because we may not have everything we want. But having God’s freedom in Christ is all that you want, need, and more!
