Galatians 5:1,13 (NIV)  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.

13You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature.

It is amazing how people have come to accept something as truth – when it is nothing but a lie.  For some reason, we think that to be a follower of God, we have to be in bondage.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, to be a slave to our passions and lusts is bondage.  My addictions are a lot less forgiving than is God.  I cannot escape my lusts, my addictions, my passions, and my failures.  But God will let me be free anytime.

The thing is, that when I give myself to God, I have victory over the very things that seek to destroy my life.  The sex, drugs, and rock’n roll that held me in bondage for years – they no longer hold me.  God’s way in my life truly is freedom!

Paul says be free – but don’t use that freedom to commit even more acts of sin.  I agree.  Freedom is moving forward under God’s strength.  Utilizing His victorious power in my life.

I love you Lord – and I appreciate the power and freedom you’ve brought to my life, my family, and my future.  It is through you God that I seek to empower those around me.  Give me strength and power.
