freedom is an incredible thing

This week we have looked at several portions of Scripture that celebrate the things that God says are truth about us.  One of those big truths is about the freedom that comes with the forgiveness of God.

It is through God’s grace and His gift of Jesus that we find freedom and forgiveness of sin.  To not apply this truth keeps us in bondage and in the middle of so many struggles.

One of the greatest songs of recent days that shares this truth comes from the Newsboys.  Here are some of the lyrics:

“I’m Free” by the Newsboys

Through you the blind will see

Through you the mute will sing

Through you the dead will rise

Through you all hearts will praise

Through you the darkness flees

Through you my heart screams

I am free, yes, I am free

I am free to run
I am free to dance
I am free to live for you
I am free, Yes, I am free

Through you the kingdom comes

Through you the battle's won

Through you I'm not afraid

Through you the price is paid

Through you there's victory

Because of you my soul sings

I am free, yes, I am free…

Who the Son sets free
Is free indeed

There is nothing that can compare to the freedom that comes from allowing God to lift burdens from our lives.  May we apply what God says and experience the freedom that God desires for us to live in!

John 8:36  NLT
So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.

Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
