Everyone seeks freedom.
Just like a bird in flight bursts forth and so majestically exemplifies, we too can be set free.
FREEDOM by definition is “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.”
I would like to add that authentic freedom first begins with the one who brought, taught, and bought FREEDOM on our behalf, Jesus!
Freedom in Christ is not the same as political or economic freedom. In fact, some of the most harshly oppressed people in history have had complete freedom in Christ. The Bible tells us that, spiritually speaking, no one is free. In Romans 6, Paul explains that we are all slaves. We are either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:2
Now that’s FREEDOM!
