The Bible says in Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm, then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” The Scripture is talking about slavery to rules and regulations for being right with God. Jesus died and was resurrected to set us free from any legal standard of righteousness except Jesus Christ. He is the standard. If He lives on the inside of you, then you’ve met the standard and you’re free from all other standards of righteousness.
True freedom is available only when we understand that Jesus purchased our freedom. He set us free. To seek to be righteous by any other standard is slavery. Stand firm in your freedom in Christ.
