Let Freedom Ring!
Yes, yes, yes! Let freedom ring.
But this saying is an apt example of what Eden Lost loves to do – cheapen and narrow. Many around the world associate freedom with politics. And in its purest sense, of course freedom applies to politics.
But it is So. Much. More.
Freedom from guilt.
Freedom from fear.
Freedom from pain.
Freedom from boredom.
Freedom from anxiety.
Freedom from obligation.
Freedom from being overwhelmed.
Freedom from being under-whelmed.
Freedom from our own fallenness.
Freedom from bondage.
We were made to live in freedom in the broadest, richest, most living giving sense. Paul reminds the Galatians and us — For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
At times we choose our yokes (not always, I get that, dear one). Is there a yoke you can set aside today as you remember you were made for freedom?
