What is freedom?

from bondage to freedomFreedom is a state in which we are free from slavery to any form of enslavement.  It includes the concept of liberty.
The Statue of Liberty in New York is a symbol of freedom and liberty for the arriving immigrants. I once went to visit this monument and the tour guide showed us that at her feet were chains and these chains represent the bondage and ensalvement of the past and of what they had left behind them.
Definition: The state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.
The theme of freedom is a theme we see over and over again in scripture. It is the underlying narrative of the story of Exodus.  Jesus Himself speaks about it.  The idea of freedom is built into the very fabric of peoples, society and nations.  It is as if it is wired into our DNA and we can have a sense of when it is absent.

  1. I would like to thank you for your lovely words. I’ve been receiving your daily scripture for a few years now and am always pleasantly surprised by the way your choice of daily words relate to my own life. God really speaks to us and His encouragement (through you) managed to lift me up in some very dark times indeed. Without that inspiration, I would never have made it.
    The world places us in bondage (of sin, disease, depression, etc) but God sets us free. I’m re-reading Rebecca Brown’s book ‘He came to set the captives free’ and to see just how powerful God is, that He can even save you from that extremely dark hold that Satan can have over you….physically AND spiritually….is truly comforting. It gives me the reassurance that there is still hope for the evil world….if they will just accept Jesus as their Savior.
    Once again, thank you for your ministry and may you be blessed in it. We are near the end of it all, I think, and believers need to stand together as warriors of the light in our efforts to gather the lost and implore them to turn their gaze upwards in praise of our Lord.
    Kind regards
    Sharon
