So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Freedom is the greatest of gifts, and it’s one that comes with a heavy price.
But freedom doesn’t mean we do what we want; it means we are gifted with an opportunity to live above ourselves. For truly, there is no greater slave driver than self-indulgence.
Christ’s freedom liberates us from guilt, shame and the desires that drove us to self-destructive habits. We are now empowered to serve others as He served, to deny our own wants so that others can be blessed.
That is the true power of freedom.
What a blessing!
