It can be freedom to do what is right, to have fun. But did you know there is more than one kind of freedom? We live in a free nation, but those freedoms did not come without cost--of lives from wars and battles. The loss of our sons and daughters, fathers, etc. So freedom can have a great cost. Did you know you could live in the USA and not be free?
There is another battle going on also. It is the freedom for your soul and spirit. This freedom can only be achieved through Christ. Did you know that spiritual freedom cost someone something? It cost the life of Jesus. We can be bound by drugs and alcohol. We can have addictions and curses that have been brought on by our fathers or mothers and not know that we can be free as a Christian. Did you know you are controlled either by the Holy Spirit or the forces of darkness? You can be a Christian and still be bound--not free.
So let's find out what our freedom really means and stand for the rights and blessings that we have been freely given by Christ. Help someone get free. Invite them to church. Better yet, invite them to Christ.
