"the chains of legalism: " shame, guilt, pride "the keys to liberty: " knowing who we are in Christ, resting in the Father's love "the life of freedom: " joyful friendship with God, obedience viewed properly Here's encouragement for defeated believers--and an appeal to the church to be free in Christ.
