“For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Corinthians 3:17, NLT).

Freedom is a precious commodity. Wars have been and continue to be fought over it, mainly because there’s always a group of people who want to take it away from another group. Even today, when you would think no one would have to be in slavery to anyone, the battle still rages. Slavery takes many forms however and to some degree, most of us would have to say we’re not completely free.

God is the only being in the whole universe who is completely, totally and unequivocally free in every way. The freedom he enjoys is hard for us to understand, because even the most free human being is still limited by a human body, a human mind and the confines of living in three-dimensional space and time. The beautiful thing about God is he wants to share his freedom with us. Because he loves us so much, he’s not happy to see us entrenched in any kind of slavery. He even sent his one and only son to die for us, to set us free forever!
