So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
It’s very clear that in our frantic search for liberty, we are allowing ourselves to become even more enslaved. What mankind perceives as being free, is not freedom at all. Since the beginning of time, authorities have been attempting to take away our God-given freedoms. And trying to get us to believe that if we wanted it back, we would have to comply with their rules. And the sad thing is that society just goes along with this lie.
Now don’t get me wrong – guidelines for how to live are important. If everyone was given free reign to simply do whatever they please, this world would be chaos. Well, actually this world is in a downward spiral. And that’s because we have abandoned the guidelines of the One who created us. He is the only One who knows what is good for us. God is the only One who knows how we can live in love and harmony as a society.
If we are honest, nobody in their right mind can really think that society is working. It’s because the rules and regulations being dictated to us are being created by mere humans – sinful mortals. And those rules are focused on everything but love. When we take a close look at the 10 commandments that God gave mankind, it is clear that they are based on one thing – Love. They are all about love for God, and love for others.
When we start living for God and for others, love is the motive. When we accept Jesus as our personal Saviour, we are truly free. Because only then, will our lives truly become what we were created to be. Only then, are we not enslaved by what the world wants or what authorities prescribe. Only then do we live for God, not because of the fear of retribution, but because of love. That is true freedom.
Have an amazing day!
