“Freedom is not doing whatever you want, freedom is following the Free One.”

August 4, 2019

We are not as free as the world would have us believe. In fact, our primary slavery isn't religion or morality, or man and culture. What the Bible tells us is that our greatest slavery is in our hearts - that we are slaves to sin. We are always under the authority of a master, and we are not as free as we think we are. The question for us today is, which master do I want to live under: Jesus or this world? Jesus is the only one who can set us free from sin. Ultimately, freedom is not doing whatever you want to do, freedom is to follow the Free One - which is Jesus.

Application Questions

  1. How do you define freedom? 
  2. What are some things which Jesus has freed you from that you can remember?
  3. What is governing your heart that keeps you from following Jesus?
