Freedom is just an easy way to help you say goodbye
As the song says, “Freedom is just an easy way to help you say goodbye.” Is it TRULY “freedom” to be absolutely unbounded by the Scriptures whenever you don’t like how it applies to “your” situation?
Is it REALLY “freedom” to live unbounded by the Holy Spirit, unbounded by a Calibrated conscience, unbounded by even intelligent observation of consequences?
Honestly, is it “freedom” to never love Jesus or His Blood-bought enough to be lost into a 1Cor.12 “Bowl of mashed potatoes” — and stay a “potato head” by yourself, always above others by claiming “freedom” and “independence”? As Peter said, “While some promise you liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption.”
It is a WISE, Spirit-filled, Biblical decision to give your life away for Jesus and others. :)
Jesus came to wash away our sins and to baptize us in His Spirit. Very excellent stuff! Now, guess what? Here is the ONLY time the expression “baptized in the Spirit” is used specifically… and it’s about LIFE TOGETHER :)
“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.”
True Freedom in Jesus is the Freedom to willingly give away everything for Jesus and His Purposes and His Lambs. :)
