TRUE FREEDOM

You did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15 (NKJV)

Throughout the ages men and women have fought for what they believed was freedom. Now that we have obtained a higher level of national security, the theme has shifted to how we can remain free. But are we really experiencing true freedom? Everywhere we turn there are evidences of freedom granted and freedom abused.

Jesus told us there is only one way to experience true freedom—by abiding in His truth. Freedom without moral restraint is not freedom; it is chaos. When we reject God’s moral values, we trade freedom for bondage. We run the risk of becoming so comfortable in our sin, we refuse to take the way out when it is given.

Are you experiencing Christ’s freedom, or are you living in bondage to the world’s sin? When you come to Jesus, placing all your needs and expectations on Him, He grants freedom the unsaved only dream of knowing.
