The Cross Provides Life and Liberty

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” Galatians 5:1



This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins continue to explore the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross accomplished more than just forgiveness of sins; it also took care of our flesh and defeated the power of Satan in our life.

When Jesus said, “…I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10b, He was speaking of the fulness that the cross would provide for us to be able to live a victorious life.

As Christians, we don’t have to let our flesh take charge of our lives anymore because we are crucified with Christ and no longer slaves to sin. Many times we look no different than the world in how we deal with each other. We bite and devour one another and consume each other, which Galatians 5:15 warns us not to do.

The liberty that we have been given by the cross gives us the power to walk in the Spirit, fight against the flesh, and to display the fruit of the Spirit to all those around us.

So join in the conversation as we discuss how The Cross Provides Life and Liberty.
