SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JANUARY 6, 2022 (RELEASED FROM THE LAW)
TOPIC: RELEASED FROM THE LAW
Memory Verse: “But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.” Romans 7:6, NIV
When the rich man pronounced the cancellation of the poor man’s huge debt, He was too dazzled to believe it. The poor man returned to the rich man the second day to ascertain the reality.
Everyone who has genuinely encountered Jesus Christ would wonder how such forgiveness was enhanced and the penalty removed. We have been set free from the curse of the law and our status has changed. We are no more in bondage serving nor in peril of the devil. We now enjoy freedom in Christ Jesus because of our release from the demand of the law so that “we might bear fruit to God” (Romans 7:4).
Jesus says, “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matthew 7:16). What fruits are you producing? The fruits coming from your life is a manifestation of who is controlling you. If you have been freed from the curse of the law, you should show it in service to God and humanity.
Insight: “Free from the law, O happy condition, Jesus hath bled and there is remission; cursed by the law and bruised by the fall; Grace hath redeemed us once for all…” Philip Bliss (BH 199)
Prayer: Help me O Lord that my lifestyle on daily basis might always show forth the evidence of my profession of faith.
RBT Passage: Genesis 21-23
