#10: Genesis 3:17-19

Chapter 3

17 To Adam he said, "Because you have listened to your wife's voice, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it,' cursed is the ground for your sake. In toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

18 Thorns also and thistles will it bring forth to you; and you will eat the herb of the field.

19 By the sweat of your face will you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For you are dust, and to dust you shall return."

Freedom In Christ

2,000 years before our nation’s forefathers risked their lives to declare America’s independence and to fight for our freedom, our heavenly father, sent his son that we might have freedom from sin and death through his son Jesus. And just as our forefathers had to choose which side of the revolutionary battle to be on, we too must decide whether to accept the freedom Christ offers. We hope you’ll feel free to check out this list of the Top 10 Things The Bible Says About Freedom In Christ.

#10: James 1:25

Chapter 6

15 What then? Will we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? Certainly not!

16 Don't you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?

17 But thanks be to God, that, whereas you were servants of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto you were delivered.

18 Being made free from sin, you became servants of righteousness.

#8: Luke 13:10-17

Chapter 13

10 He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath day.

11 Behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bent over, and could in no way lift herself up.

12 When Jesus saw her, he called her, and said to her, "Woman, you are freed from your infirmity."

13 He laid his hands on her, and immediately she stood up straight, and glorified God.

14 The ruler of the synagogue, being moved with indignation because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, answered to the multitude, "There are six days in which men ought to work. Therefore come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day!"

15 Therefore the Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each one of you free his ox or his donkey from the stall on the Sabbath, and lead him away to water?

16 Ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound eighteen long years, to have been freed from this bondage on the Sabbath day?"

17 As he said these things, all his adversaries were put to shame, and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

#6: Ephesians 3:7-12

Chapter 3

7 whereof I was made a servant, according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power.

8 To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,

9 and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ;

10 to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places,

11 according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus, our Lord;

12 in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
