The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right
2 Corinthians 3:17 (KJB) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
True freedom does not leave a soul in bondage to ideals, handouts, whims, religiosity, or in adhering to civil rules and out of spiritual synchrony or fellowship with God as is legislated by lost hearts in this world. Bondage at work in this world always leads lost souls to do and say according to their own desires, what is popular, palatable, and in agreement with the darkness of this world rather than agreeing with truths of God.
True freedom is always found where the spirit of the Lord dwells. This independence involves the Spirit of God for such liberty is only realized when God is involved. The god of this world pushes for suppression and personal defeat and reliance upon the things of man rather than trusting in God.
The world is naturally born into captivity to god while every newly regenerated spiritual heart has the freedom to do and to express as the as the Spirit of God leads. It is sad that many people do not understand there is certain eternal freedom in personally knowing and agreeing with the nature of Christ. Instead, wayward hearts often make choices and decisions which pair them aligned with ideals of mankind rather than coming to agree with the eternal decrees and direction of God.
If a person desires true freedom, he or she must seek out a personal relationship with God and invite His Spirit to dwell in their heart for only then is true freedom recognized and relished, both in this world and for eternity.
