Many believe freedom comes as a result of personal independence; the ability to make one’s own decisions. Unfortunately, that is not always the case as seen in the following examples:
The student who leaves home from their parent’s watchful eye to experience college life and instead becomes pregnant
The biker who believes freedom comes on an open road at full throttle speed only to be thrown from his bike
The runaway looking for love but finds herself captured and forced into sex-trafficking
The drug addict who decides another hit will numb him from the pain he feels inside
The woman who ignores the warning signs and now finds herself a victim of domestic violence
The man who thought he could rob a store and now finds himself in jail
The poor choices made in each of these situations are the result of not understanding what true freedom is about.
So what does true freedom mean? True and complete freedom is found in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Until you understand and accept Him as Lord and Savior, you will stay shackled by the bondage of sin. Jesus wants to set you free! https://maureenhager.com/resources.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17
There are many other freedom Scriptures for you to explore. It is obvious to me that Jesus wants us to live free. Realizing this truth has set me free from the bondage and sin of life in a biker gang. He has given me a restored life. He wants to do the same for you! You can shake off the chains that have kept you from living a life of freedom. The Lord will answer you and set you free. (Psalm 118:5)
*All Scriptures are taken from NKJV.
Thank you, Lord, for your shed blood on Calvary so we could be set free!
