Wow its July already and this week it doesn’t even feel like summer where we live, but it sure beats the scorching hot weather so I am certainly thankful. For July we are going to focus on how Christ has set us free. It can be your testimony of when you were saved or an everyday testimony of how Christ continually frees you from bondage the things that try to keep you captive.
Here are some scriptures to inspire you.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
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.
You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature ; rather, serve one another in love.
But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.
Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.
1 Peter 2:16

Here is my layout that I made using one of the quickpages that were created with my Set Free kit. The journaling reads:
God before you, I never felt I belonged. I was always looking to be excepted and loved in all the wrong places. I was held captive by my sinful nature and trying to find acceptance in ways that only brought hurt. I was raised in a Christian family, but I always thought I had to get my life straight first.
One day you reached out to me and revealed that you loved me despite how I fell short. Not only that, but you sent your son who died to set it all straight and that if I accept that he died for me. I would not only belong, but would be co-heirs with Christ as your child. This means freedom from doing things the way the world does, as it doesn’t and didn’t work. It also means I get to live eternally with you, my creator and loving Father.
I continue to live in freedom, but only as long as I give the authority in my life to you. Your Holy Spirit guides and shapes me into living holy, righteous, and obedient to your word. I pray that I am a light to others so they will want your freedom too.
