What is freedom?
Is freedom being able to “do what I want when I want and however I want?”
Is freedom having an absence of confinement and restrictions?
Is freedom being able to speak, work, and live without rules and boundaries?
Truly, in this day and age, freedom seems to be negotiable to the person or parties making those decisions.
It seems to be even controversial, being derived from rest ace to tyranny or hatred for authority and demanded of by some who take it for granted or don’t even understand how it’s won.
However, because I am a child of God, my truth doesn’t change with culture nor with man.
My truth comes from the Word of God; so, when seeking the definition of freedom, I must seek what God tells me is true.
Jesus said, in John 8:36, “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
Then, Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
And Paul expounded in Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
For Christians, Christ has given us a clear
picture of what freedom is and what He has meant it to be in our lives:
True freedom can only be found in the
redemption fo Jesus Christ!
So, if you are a child of the King today, you are FREE!
If you are saved by the Blood of the Lamb, and your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, YOU ARE FREE!!
Let us rejoice in His freedom! Let us praise Him for the great things He has done!
Let us raise our hands and lift our voices with a grateful heart for the freedom He has brought us, both within our spiritual lives and within this country that we live, because we are free to worship Him today!
