You Are Free — That’s a Wrap!

We hope you enjoyed the You Are Free Online Bible Study with Rebekah Lyons as much as we did!

Free as a bird! I still love that phrase. The study has been such an amazing six weeks of gaining back lost territory and learning to fly in the freedom Christ came to bring us.

As we look back, remember that this is your last week to watch all the videos again http://www.faithgateway.com/you-are-free-study-home/ — available now through midnight this Saturday! Our wrap-up week is a great time review your study guide, finish any parts you missed, and set aside some extra time with the Lord to walk through the study with Him again.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. — 2 Corinthians 3:17

This freedom thing is costly but worth it. ~ Rebekah Lyons

At the beginning of this study we were reminded how easy it is to get bound up in messes, crises, pain, and wrong views of who God is and what He desires for us. It’s easy to pull a cage up around ourselves in this broken world, isn’t it? But, our Savior Jesus set foot on earth to bring us the abundant life we long for at the very core of our souls, in our most broken and bound places. He came to give us the kind of freedom that is so lavish and overflowing that it has the power to set others free as well.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. — Galatians 5:1

That’s why I’ve so loved this study. We’ve gained some important ground, my friends! Some of us have made headway in laying down lies about God and understanding better who He is and how He feels about us. Some of us have found tremendous relief in our souls once we gained the courage to confess and repent. What a gift! Some of us learned to give our busyness over to God and rest knowing He’s got us covered. And some of us got our party on with Jesus! How awesome is that?!

Jesus is here with us, friends. He paid such an awesome price for our freedom. Let’s walk into it and never give back old ground.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. — Matthew 28:20

Thank you, Rebekah, for sharing You Are Free with us. Thank you for sharing vulnerably and sharing the wisdom you gained in your own freedom journey. We learned so much about Jesus and what He has for us through this study.

Dear Jesus, thank You for the freedom You bought for us. Help us to not be bound to old junk or trapped in old cages, but to fly freely, ready and willing to do whatever You have for us to do. We are so grateful that You love us as You do. Thank You for the gift of confession. Thank You for the joy of celebration. Thank You for the pleasure of rest. Thank You for freedom. We love You. Amen!
