The freedom Christ gave us is freedom from the bondage of sin, from the basic principle of this world, and from the old self, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
I tasted a bit the freedom in Christ last week. I was totally controlled by my emotion and got angry. Funny that I know it is wrong, it does not really make me feel good either, but I just can’t control, or even don’t want to control, instead I just let my emotion to be expressed to the very extreme. But somehow this time I was convicted and went to pray. I asked for forgiveness and prayed to be set free from my emotion. Immediately, the spirit of peace came to my heart, and all the negative emotion left me. It is a real relief after confession, like a huge burden removed at that moment. The humbleness I got from the Spirit is also very comforting, light and gentle. Praise God!
