“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.” John 8:36 (AMP)
God’s love is real and He gives you His power to live in freedom.
Freedom is a journey and changing how we live our lives takes time.
You have already been well trained by life’s enslaving lies. Your flesh, old nature and false self is steeped deep in old habits, temptations, and thought patterns that are set in it through years of experience and practice.
Knowing Jesus means that you are learning from Him how to live in a new way, to love in a new way, to think in a new way.
A way of life that you are made for and He died for.
Don’t give up.
Keep following Jesus and take it one day at a time.
