Spirit of Freedom

“Ah! believer, it is safer always for you to be led of the Spirit into gospel liberty than to wear legal fetters. Judge yourself at what Christ is rather than what you are. Satan will try to mar your peace by reminding you of your sinfulness and imperfections: you can only meet his accusations by faithfully adhering to the Gospel and refusing to wear the yoke of bondage.”

-- Charles Spurgeon, Morning & Evening, September 6


Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
-- 2 Corinthians 3:17

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.
-- Galatians 5:1

Jared, thank you for this and for the Radiance post as well. I can't begin to tell you how they have and are ministering to me. I have needed to hear both very badly for some time.
