Half the battle is to get free, and the other half is to stay free. The way we stay free is not through our own strength- but through Jesus (Galatians 2:20)- the way we stay free is through obedience and through Gods's discipline. His discipline shows us that He loves us and teaches us to obey. When we obey we stay within His circle of blessing and are protected! Let's draw near God, because when we know Him we want to obey and have the power to do so!
