Our Freedom in Christ - Part 1

Freedom in Christ frees us from religious practices unrelated to salvation

Galatians 5:1 Christ having made us gloriously free—stand fast and do not again be hampered with the yoke of slavery.

Jewish commentaries on the Law indicate that God “brought you—Israel—out of Egypt on the condition that you should receive the yoke of commandments; he who acknowledged the yoke of commandments acknowledges that I have brought Israel out of Egypt.”

This was a yoke that the Jews gladly accepted because it showed them to be a special people to God.
