We do not belong to this world anymore, for we are of the one who has created a new world. In Christ, we died to the elemental principles by his death, and now we live only in him. Do not let the rationale of the elemental teach us how to understand our life In the new creation.
How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
