Free and Responsible
Christ died to set us free from sin, death, fear, and shame in order to establish us in freedom so we can live and love as God’s glorious children.
Psalm 103:8–13; Acts 14:16-17; James 1:17–18; 2 Peter 3:9;
Matthew 7:11; Galatians 5:22–23; Psalm 119:68; Zephaniah 3:17; Psalm 104; Exodus 34:5–7; Acts 17:22-31
Freedom is very personal, but it is not self-centered. We have been given freedom so we may present ourselves to the Lord as a willing sacrifice, surrendered and ready to serve.
Galatians 5:13–14; Romans 12:1–2, 14:7–9, 15:1–7; Matthew 4:1–11
Freedom and responsibility are inseparable. We experience true freedom as we cooperate with the Holy Spirit to produce the fruit of self-control and use our freedom to bless others.

We are responsible for partnering with the Holy Spirit to continually develop the foundation of our character so our character can support our growing influence and anointing.
