In this reading, two important words to consider are “from” and “to”. Jesus frees us from the power of sin and death to become the people God wants us to be…from selfishness to selflessness…from self-interest to a life of service…from self-righteousness to God’s righteousness…from self-loathing to God’s steadfast love.
What has following Jesus delivered you from and where has it taken you to? Who has it delivered you from and who is it delivering you to?
Offer a prayer of thanksgiving for the freeing power of grace that compels you to become more Christ-like in the way you feel, think, speak, and act.
