For freedom Christ has set us free: stand firm therefore,
and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Are you standing firm in your freedom? I like that this makes freedom something worth attaining and standing strong for. Our culture takes our "freedoms" so lightly and as if any and all things are ok--implying freedom is laid back, even lazy. But that is actually submission--to a yoke of slavery. How are you fighting for your freedom? What are you resisting so you can stand strong?
