28 Powerful Bible Verses about Freedom in Christ

Do you desire to live in true freedom in Christ? Do you want more peace? Do you want to be rid of fear and possess the joy of the Lord? If the Holy Spirit lives within you, then you have full access to all of the glorious riches of His presence. Listen to Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians: 

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.” 

Eph 3:16-17

Jesus through the Holy Spirit dwells within the hearts of his children; he takes up residence within the inner sanctuaries of our souls. Is Jesus at home in your heart? Does he have full access to every room, corner and closet of your heart? He wants to infuse your temple with the glorious riches of his strength and power! Paul’s prayer continues…

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Eph 3:17-19 

God’s love for us is as wide and vast as the deepest ocean. When we are rooted and grounded in him, he will give us inexplicable insight into the depth, length, height, and width of his love for us. It is…immeasurable…infinite…eternal.  The more we discover the depths of his love, the more he will fill us with the fullness of his presence—more of himself—more of his glory. 

We will become overflowing rivers of his rest, goodness, compassion, mercy, love, light, joy, peace, holiness and freedom. Our lives will be filled with so much of his goodness that it spills over and flows into the lives of those around us. To God be the glory! 

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Eph 3:20
