Has it happened to you that every time you read your bible you feel that a biblical verse was written for you? It is a similar feeling when someone pronounces your name and calls you. I firmly believe that we have been called to be free in Christ. Today we are going to be learning a little about what’s in the bible about freedom. Because, you have been called to be free.
You have been called to be Free
In Corinthians 2 verses 3:17 says:
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]. – Amplified Bible (AMP)
The Spirit of the Lord gives us life and just turning our hearts to Him we will become completely free. Freedom speaks to us of a condition where we are not being oppressed until being slaves. In freedom, we are not being subjected to that which exercises authority over us with the only purpose to enslave us.
We have been called to spiritual liberty through the sacrifice of Jesus in the cross for our salvation and forgiveness of our sins. John 8:36 says:
So if the Son makes you free, then you are unquestionably free. – Amplified Bible (AMP)
Christ and the Word of Truth gives us freedom and the works of the Holy Spirit in us gives us liberty of the power of sin in our lives.
If you have received Jesus in your heart and you are the temple of the Holy Spirit you are unquestionably free as it’s says this verse. Do you believe it? – “For you, my brothers, were called to freedom; only do not let your freedom become an opportunity for the [a]sinful nature (worldliness, selfishness), but through love serve and seek the best for one another.” Galatians 5:13
