I finished my first book for the #EmptyShelf challenge. It’s a fantastic book! You should really read it.
It’s called Learning to Walk in Freedom 🙂
You can go ahead and laugh 🙂 I needed to read the proof that was mailed to me by the printer. This time, I wasn’t meticulously reading to find typos (hopefully, those have mostly been found!). I was reading to make sure everything looked good on the page.
I was reminded why I wrote this book and why I believe in it so strongly.
Here are some of my favorite moments. If you haven’t read it yet, now is the time to get yourself a copy!
I believe Scripture teaches that freedom is both a one-time gift and a process. The moment we come to Jesus Christ, He gives us freedom through the Holy Spirit, so that we are no longer slaves to sin (Romans 6:17–18), but that freedom is something we need to learn to walk out in our lives.
If we expect a life free from temptation, then we expect to be more free than Jesus.
Free people do whatever it takes to become free and remain free. Whatever it takes. Jesus did whatever it took so we have the opportunity to learn to walk in freedom. He gave up everything as He hung from that cross, dying a criminal’s death, carrying the sin and the shame of the entire world on His back.
