Total freedom is the myth. It always has border or limitation. Fish is Free in water but when it crosses border, its life is finished. Driving Licence gives freedom to drive with yoke of Road safety laws and regulations.

Freedom to be Free:
“Sin has offered humanity a freedom to live and practice sin against God. From Sin God has given to live in freedom with his Love” Genesis 6 speaks about the corruption of mankind and God felt sorry for creating the world by seeing the life of humans since it was always evil. It is the spiritual Liberty that God gives as a gift. John 8:36 says if the son has set you free you are free indeed. Ro 6:17,18: “17But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18and having been freed (1659/eleutheróō) from sin, you became slaves of righteousness” (NASB).
Freedom to be Firm:
Now the call for us is to be firm and remain strong and subjective to the freedom. We are assured a freedom but the value of the freedom is in standing firm. Even though India received freedom from the British it was enslaved to the landlords, high caste etc. which made the freedom to be firm less. Today’s society is the great example for not being in firm. People have fear to walk in freedom, people have fear to eat in freedom, people have fear to talk in freedom, people have fear to live in freedom, and intolerance becomes the grater issue.

From the freedom less state Christian missionaries has brought several changes in the nation in Giving Identity to the oppressed, Education to the oppressed etc. but the present situation is vast different Christians who are called to proclaim freedom has been diverted to the self-seekers Total astray from the society.
Bible characters like Joseph and Daniel are called to proclaim and release people from slavery. Its our responsibility to bring firmness into the freedom through our actin and involvement in the society.
Freedom not to be yoked:
“Not the yoke of slavery but the yoke of Jesus” someone who belongs to another; a bond-slave, without any ownership rights of their own. Mat 11:30. Lord Jesus spoke about the true freedom within his values. yoke within Jesus is slight we are controlled by the biblical values which gives us freedom to walk righteous.
