FREEDOM IN THE WORD

FREEDOM IN THE WORD

Galatians 5:1, 13 “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. 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 Scene: A view from above; a representation of God’s people who are playing, enjoying their freedom. A very large ocean-going power boat, making fast turns, zig-zagging along. Above the speed boat is a jet flying close to the water, with its powerful engine exhaust causing the water to spray, forming a rooster tail wake beside the boat.

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”

The blue waters represent the living water (the Word of God). We can have complete freedom when we live according to the Word (the Holy Bible) and are not restricted by the legalist, who wants us to focus on just one part, and who may twist completely the Word, which would bring death, not life. Then we are truly freed from fear of death and can look forward to life in heaven with our Lord Jesus and our heavenly rewards, which are gained through our faith in Him and our obedience.
