I’ve got to be free!
Deep in the heart of every person is a desire to be free... free to go anywhere you want.
“No, this bus doesn’t stop at the planet Zeenon today.”
….Free to work anywhere you want.
“Okay, um… I’ll take this job.”
...Free to live anywhere you want.
“Yeah...I’ve always wanted to live here.”
...Free to pursue your dreams.
“I’m going to marry that girl some day.”
We live in the freest country in the world….
...Yet how many people are truly free?
“Work harder! I’ve got to work harder!”
The reason so many of us still feel trapped is that we define freedom as doing what we want to do.
“No girl is going to tie me down. No sireee! I...uh...like my freedom.”
“Hey, it’s a free country. I can do what I want.”
What we don’t understand is that such freedom really leads to slavery.
“Hey, I’m not a slave! I can…”
“...Any time I want!”
True freedom is the ability to do what we know we should do.
“Should do? I don’t do that!”
In fact, many people who think they are “free,” if they were honest, would admit that they are really slaves. Jesus said,
“Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.” (John 8:34)
But Jesus also said,
“If the Son [Jesus] therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
“But how can Jesus…”
“...Set us free?”
Jesus Christ voluntarily died to take the punishment for the sin that enslaves you....sin that keeps you from knowing God and His forgiveness.
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the spirit.” (1 Peter 3:18)
After three days in the grave, Jesus Christ came back to life to prove His power to free us from sin.
“[Jesus] was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)
“From the grave?”
“The Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me...Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.” (Galatians 2:20; 5:1)
“Jesus loves us?”
“Jesus freed us?”
We can be assured of freedom from the penalty of our sin when we stop trusting in our own good deeds to save us and begin trusting in Christ as the complete payment for our sins.
“Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:22-24)
And when we trust Christ, He promised to send His spirit to live in us and give us the freedom to do what we should do. That is real freedom!
“Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)
“Dear Lord Jesus, I now trust that your sacrifice paid for my sins. I receive your forgiveness and your gift of eternal life.”
“Thank you for dying for me and for setting me free!”
“Yeah!”“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10)
