SET FREE TO LIVE THE TRUTH:

John 8:32

We are called to be Righteous, but we do not create our righteousness. We’re righteous because Jesus Christ has determined to love us. We are loved. We are free. Period.

True freedom, doesn’t mean the freedom to cast off all responsibilities and no longer consider what it means to live a life that exhibits goodness. Freedom comes as a gift, but we can make the foolish choice to surrender the very freedom we’ve been given. When we do, it’s then, we can become enslaved by and to: whims and passions, addictions, and trivial selfishness. We can, in fact, “destroy one another,” if we don’t intensely guard our freedom and love God and others well. (Galatians 5:15) 

In order to guard our freedom, we need to confess and turn from our sins, turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, follow Him, while trusting in the Holy Spirit’s wisdom and His work. We must say “No!” to the old life (the flesh). We must commit to boldly love the Lord, and one another. We must courageously embrace and confess the truth that we “who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of [our old] sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there” 

Jesus has truly set us free. Will we now squander that freedom and prostitute ourselves by selling ourselves back into the worlds system for a few earthly pleasures? Jesus has provided the way to lasting freedom, but the choice remains ours.
