“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36 NIV)
Don’t let anyone or anything tie you into believing you are a slave again.
That you have no choice or power to say NO to old habits, old thought patterns, old temptations, or old addictions. That you have no hope of changing, growing, transforming.
When the Son sets you free, you are free. You are free from the power of sin and it is not your master anymore.
Why then does it take so long to learn how to live in this freedom? Why the struggle?
It is because while your spirit has been released from the contract of sin and is legally free, your flesh has been well trained by it’s former slavery. The flesh has the old habits, temptations, and thought patterns grooved into it thru experience and years of practice.
It takes time, experience and perseverance to create thenew grooves of freedom.
Just as a bird is made to fly, a child of God is made to live in freedom.
However, it is up to you to claim your freedom.
It is up to you learn to walk in it.
It is up to you to learn how to fly with the wings of freedom God has already given you.
“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free”. (John 8:36 AMP)
You should start (or restart) learning to live in freedom…unquestionably.
