John 8:36 – “If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
The freeing of the self is the real purpose of righteousness – the rightness that God asks of His children. Yet we have often thought that righteousness means the end of all our fun and freedom. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. God’s love means pure goodwill and freedom for us.
The world may seduce you through its evil ways promising freedom but it is a bait. Once you bite the bait, then you are hooked and there is no real freedom. The devil will cause you to be in bondage to him. In Christ alone can we find true freedom and security. When Jesus lives in a person, then that person experiences true freedom since he walks in the ways of God. Are you really free? If so, what are you doing to protect that freedom?
