Freedom. What is Freedom?
I’ve been thinking about that a lot the past few days. It was the 4th. It’s on a lot of minds these days. So, I thought it might be a good idea to see what the Bible has to says.
Here are a few verses
Psalm 119:45 I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
1 Corinthians 6:12 “Everything is permissible for me” – but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me” – but I will not be mastered by anything.
Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 3:22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
Galatians 5:13-14 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Ephesians 3:12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
1 Peter 2:16 Live as free men, but do not use your freedom to cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.
