What does it mean to be a ‘free’ Christian? This week, our Chaplain tells all!

We just celebrated the independence of our great nation and also the freedom which comes along with it. Freedom is a cornerstone of our country and what has set us apart from the rest of the world. We take our liberties very seriously as Americans, but when scripture talks about our freedom, what is it telling us?

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Corinthians 3:17 (ESV)

God’s presence in our lives through Jesus is what sets us free. Jesus made a way for us to live free from sin and shame that could never have been done through our own good works.

“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.” Acts 13:38-39 (NKJV)

We do have liberty through Jesus, but we often think of it as an absence of something in our lives (alcohol, drugs, prison…). Perhaps, though, we should see it as the freedom to be who God created and redeemed us to be. We have been set free to walk in the righteousness of Christ Jesus and to live empowered by the Holy Spirit.

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” Romans 8:1-4 (NKJV)

It is important to also know the proper use of our freedom Found through Christ. We are to use it to serve and bless others, not for our own pleasures.

“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13 (ESV)

God is calling us to serve and love with this amazing gift of freedom. We are to use our freedom to become who God created us to be and, in turn, love others the way God loves them and to bring them into His Kingdom.
