Do you ever feel stuck or trapped in your circumstances? We all crave freedom in our lives. In fact, it was the desire for freedom that inspired the beginnings of our great nation. But freedom goes beyond our rights to worship and free speech. Jesus died to set us free from sin, death, and the corruption of this world. And when you surrender your heart to Him, your freedom in Jesus is secure for all eternity.

Here are 10 Bible verses that proclaim your freedom in Jesus:

- For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. – Romans 6:6-7 (NIV)
- For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. – Romans 8:20-21
Once a slave to sin and darkness, as children of God, our freedom in Jesus is secure and cannot be taken away from us.
